Poor Little Lambs

Synopsis:
at some point in their past, the Monroe children noticed that their grandmother only ever tells five anecdotes. Since there are, conveniently, five Monroe children, they've made an annual game out of drawing the stories from her. When a bet raises the stakes of the game, this already twisted pastime gets downright nasty. But it may be that Grandma isn't quite the unwitting mark she appears to be. . .
