Two sisters have been playing and perfecting their secret sibling game for decades. Now in their sixties, and about to lose their home, it’s time to unleash the family fun on the world.

Their goddaughter, desperate for the plan to succeed, has been pitching the game to investors; but with added high stakes – win a real-money jackpot by playing the game publicly online - with a live voting audience judging the emotionally eviscerating, truth telling final round.

The family test out this new feature…but can their relationships survive this ruthless game? Will their home even be worth saving by the end of it?

Disfunction is a brutal comedy about a family ripping itself apart to find the truth within and how far anyone might go for the financial security they crave.
