Keeping up with the Joneses gets personal for Nate Pitzel when he comes home for his sister's high school graduation and discovers that their rich fucking cousin has replaced him as the family's favored son. Drugs, alcohol, and an extravagant family vacation (that only one side of the family can afford) combine to test the limits of the ties that bind in this play of Midwestern-morals-meets-Millennial-misanthropy.
