SYNOPSIS

Alan, a corporate lawyer, and Annette, who works in wealth management,” visit the apartment of Michael, a wholesaler, and Veronica, a writer, to discuss how to deal with a playground altercation between their 11 year old sons the previous day.

Alan and Annettes son, Freddy, hit Michael and Veronicas son, Bruno, with a stick, breaking two of his teeth.
The parents have gathered to discuss, rationally and amicably, how to deal with the boys and also the matter of the dentist's fee.
At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and alcohol flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters. The couples initially spar against each other, but the men gang up on the women and the spouses switch sides as the fighting continues.
