Set in Georgia in the 2010s, married competitive gamer couple Max and Annie are trying to have a child but their attempts are unsuccessful due to Max's anxiety surrounding his feelings of inadequacy when compared to his wealthy and suave brother Brooks, whom he's been avoiding due to his bullying treatment of him over the years. During Max and Annie's routine weekend game night with their friends Ryan, and married couple Kevin and Michelle, Brooks shows up in a Corvette Stingray (Max's dream car) and shares an embarrassing story about Max to throw him off during a game. Brooks offers to host the next game night at his home. Meanwhile, Max and Annie are trying to keep their game night secret from their weird neighbor Gary, a police officer left depressed after his divorce from their old friend Debbie.
