Set on Halloween and described as a cross between “Superbad” and “Adventures in Babysitting.” 17 year old Wren, aka Karen DeSantis, is coerced by her promiscuous mother into watching her weird little brother Albert on Halloween, when what she really wants to do is go to a Halloween party thrown by her hearthrob Aaron Riley. Wren finds her night going bizarrely awry when Albert wanders off and she desperately tries to track him down before her mother can find out he's missing.
