In the wake of her parent's death, Iris struggles to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick, a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. When he invites her to an exclusive dinner party, she accepts. Also attending the dinner party are seven more desperate individuals. They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick's mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where the winner will be awarded untold amounts of money. As the game progresses, the dilemmas Iris and the other players face grow increasingly deadly.

- Alternate synopsis: Iris has been taking care of her brother, Raleigh, ever since her parents died in an accident. Raleigh is struggling with Leukemia and as his health gets worse, the bills get more expensive. Iris is desperate and jobless. Miraculously, her doctor introduces her to the fabulously wealthy and powerful Shepard Lambrick, who presents Iris with an opportunity to compete in a game. If she wins, the Lambrick Foundation will find a donor for her brother and pay for the rest of his treatment. Iris accepts the invitation.
When she arrives, she meets her fellow opponents – all desperate individuals with their own tragic stories, each hoping to find salvation through Shepard Lambrick¹s game of Would You Rather. (His own twist on the popular children¹s game.) However, Shepard Lambrick¹s version of Would You Rather is definitely not for children. It requires that the players act on their decisions, within seconds. Almost immediately the game becomes life threatening.
Anyone who tries to leave and not continue the game will be shot on the spot. As the rounds progress, the contestants are pushed to their extremes and soon players begin to be eliminated forever.
