The newly graduated seniors await the kickoff signal from this year's judges, and tensions build as old friends become new competitors. Heather has sworn she will never play the game, but she may not have a choice.
In a forgotten rural town, every year the graduating seniors risk their lives in an illegal, high-stakes game to win life-changing money - and a chance to escape. Anonymous judges force the players through a series of challenges that will compel them to confront their deepest fears - and upend their ideas of who they are, who to trust, and who they might become. This year, 47 players will compete for the biggest pot ever. All of them will be changed. Only one will win.
