One evening, a young married couple settle in for a nice, relaxing game of Settlers of Catan. But what begins as friendly competition soon becomes heated, ushering in an epic struggle for dominance. Old grudges and hidden wounds rise to the surface, exposing the reality beneath the veneer of their relationship and pushing them towards a final reckoning from which there is no return... for there can be only one Lord of Catan.

Amy Acker plays “Sugar Monkey,” a young woman who comes home from work wanting nothing more than to curl up with her new obsession-the seemingly innocent but highly addictive board game, Settlers of Catan. To all appearances, the definition of sweetness, her magnetic smile hides depths of rage and volatility borne from the pet peeves and unspoken resentments that have accumulated over the course of her marriage.
