Project Synopsis
In a suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. The quintessential American backyard party turns quickly turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential.
