Max and Annie's weekly game night gets kicked up a notch when Max's brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party -- complete with fake thugs and federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all supposed to be part of the game. As the competitors set out to solve the case, they start to learn that neither the game nor Brooks are what they seem to be. The friends soon find themselves in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn over the course of one chaotic night.

How to Build & Maintain Healthy Boundaries

  1. State your limits - you can’t set good boundaries if you’re unsure of where you stand. Identify your physical, mental, and spiritual limits. Consider your past and present and how you reacted to certain situations where you broke these boundaries. Seek support if you need it, and mean what you say.
  2. Tune into your feelings - the moment when you feel uncomfortable or stressed is when you’ve crossed your limit. Feelings of resentment can also be a red flag. Decide what your core values are and practice self-awareness.
  3. Be assertive - if people try to challenge your opinion or your limits, stand your ground and be direct about what’s most comfortable for you!
  4. Give yourself permission - make self-care a priority and allow yourself to set boundaries without feeling guilty. You don’t need to say yes to something if you feel drained or taken advantage of. Decide the consequences ahead of time and decide what you need to do to honor yourself and your needs.
  5. Start small - setting boundaries can be hard, especially around new people or people who constantly push you. Remember the purpose of setting boundaries: to protect and take care of yourself. Separate yourself from others if need be. Respect yourself, don’t try to change others, and stay true to you.
