In a near yet very changed future, where civilians volunteer to undergo traumatic medical testing in exchange for “favors” from the government, two doctors find themselves on lockdown with their belligerent patient and are forced to confront the very nature of their work. Does the given consent absolve them of the horrors of their work? Is informed consent still consent if all you’ve done is make it impossible to say no?

Liz is already unraveling when she and her boyfriend Harry arrive at her cousin Eric’s for Thanksgiving dinner. Expecting a marriage proposal, Liz enlists Eric’s help in deflecting the question, but bigger questions arise when a stranger stopping by turns out to be the lesbian ex-lover Liz wasn’t ready for in her freshman year of college. The past comes crashing back, the truth comes tumbling in, and secrets are served instead of dinner. Characters face issues of sexuality, loyalty, family, religion, and the inescapable self.
