For most, the summer between high school and college is a dream...but for Otis, it’s a nightmare. While everyone else knows where they are going off to college, Otis is stuck on the waitlist for his dream school — but even if he got in he’s not sure he’d be able to afford it. That doesn’t stop him from going to the desert with his two best friends, Jaden and Cora, to celebrate their college plans.


But on the way to their weekend getaway, the trio hits a woman in the middle of the road...only to discover she’s holding a briefcase filled with $1 million dollars. Each with their own concealed motives, they cover up the hit-and-run and take the briefcase for themselves.


Otis, Jaden, and Cora abscond to their desert Airbnb where they have one night to decide what to do with the body and the money. When the victim unexpectedly wakes up, she reveals that they have entered into a much deadlier game than they had originally thought. Her hitwoman partner is after them and seeks revenge. The cracks, and lies used to cover up these cracks, in their friendship come to an explosive head...with fatal consequences.
