Deconstruct the plot of Jenga, please: Yelena returns to her childhood home for the first time in 12 years only to discover that her older sister, Simone, has transformed it into a “Burning Man”-inspired, booby-trapped game room of fairy wings and glitter. As monstrous noises filter in from an offstage room, the two sisters battle in a series of escalating games over whether or not to finally confront a violent incident in their past.
