Synopsis : 
When five people respond, Brandon gets the group together to play, hoping to lead a one-time game without too much fuss. However, the players are full of questions and opinions, and the curmudgeonly game master gets more than he bargained for. We follow the players both IRL and as their fantasy counterparts in the supernatural realm as they embark on a daring and heartfelt journey towards understanding and acceptance of one another and, most importantly, of themselves.
