A dinner party! A simple ingredient, added to the occasion, changes the entire affair. Deep-rooted tensions — tensions never discussed for well over a decade — are unearthed! With 8 friends feuding – not letting the next person speak – this tight-knit group lose their respective appetites by the end of the evening, each other… and in some cases, themselves. (
