Miriam (voiced by Dani Lennon) and her siblings, trophy wife Kelsy (Florence Hartigan), closet gay Collin (Benjain Siemon) and death metal rocker Ethan (Damien C. Haas), hate their father Cyrus (Ray Wise), as he has abused them since childhood, and in turn they pretty much torpedoed his bid to run for vice president. Now Cyrus, pretty much on his death bed, has invited them all to his office though for a farewell, which none of them is too excited about - but an anticipated inheritence might be a big enough lure. However, Cyrus has called them all to his office to have them executed by his henchmen. Of the four only Miriam manages to escape. She goes to the police, but nobody believes her, and given she has a history of psychotic episodes, she ends up in the psych ward of a hospital ... where she meets the Gamemaster (Morena Baccarin), a woman who tells her this whole episode is part of a game, and she can go back in time to save her siblings. And then the Gamemaster sends her back in time to the point where she meets her siblings at her father's office. She tries to convince them of the true intentions of Cyrus, but they're reluctant to listen, and ultimately Cyrus decides to have her killed first to not spoil all the fun. Miriam can only just overcome her would-be killer (Bill Mosely), but can only listen to her sister's screams as she dies in a perverted contraption - which is when the Gamemaster interferes again and turns back the time so Miriam can save Kelsy, as she has found some fans among the audience. This time around, Miriam manages to save all of her siblings, overcome Cyrus's henchmen, and finally, she and family face off against Cyrus - which is when the Gamemaster interferes again, as this ending doesn't sit too well with the audience, and she creates a new situation - which might force Miriam to make some tough decisions and do thing's she wouldn't want to do, just to save her own life ...

William Shatner kind of narrates the movie, doesn't interfere in the action though.

 

Now of course, the premise as well as the storyline as a whole of this movie are very far-fetched to the point where things don't always ring true even factoring in the suspension of disbelief - but while this might be the case, the film's also constructed and told in a way that the "what happens next?" factor outweighs all other concerns, and the film's also nicely enough paced to not give one enough time to second-guess, and by that I don't mean that things are dumbed down - quite the contrary, many ideas in the film are pretty inspired - but that it has set out first and foremostly to entertain.

Now in regards to technical aspects, while the character designs and backdrops are very accomplished and detailed, the animation is not top notch - but the film is well enough edited and uses interesting angles and effects to still keep things lively throughout and draw its viewer into what turns out to be a bizarre yet enjoyable piece of mindfuck.
