If it hasn't been opened, the air particles inside gain kinetic energy, meaning that the bag will expand and eventually pop.

Then the sun's heat is transferred into the particles of the bag, and so the particles move apart, melting the bag. If extreme heat, the bag may face sublimation. (Looking at the particle matter through the particle theory of matter.)
