About

Overview

On a summer’s evening in Amsterdam‚ two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food‚ the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words‚ terrible things need to be said. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act. As civility and friendship disintegrate‚ both couples show just how far they will go to protect those they love.
