Flash-back two years: Jordan Dunkin, a high school senior, and Taylor Dunkin, a junior in college, are left to care for their younger cousin Chris, while their aunt and uncle travel freely for business. A parentless household provides the perfect venue for Taylor’s infamous “ragers.” As Chris and his friends become exposed to the drugs and alcohol that blanket the parties, they are met with temptations beyond anything they’ve ever experienced.
