|Synopsis||Jean is the perfect host and has planned a get together to celebrate their friends Diane and George’s 25-year partnership. Bringing everyone together has been a bit of a trial and things go wrong – the cake is destroyed in an accident involving Dan and Jean’s best friend, Karen. Their daughter Sarah’s boyfriend decides not to attend, Karen’s husband Harry prefers to support his football team and to cap it all George’s car breaks down, which results in the celebration being postponed to the following day in this drama about secrets and lies.
About 23 years ago Dan and Karen had an affair and Dan is unaware that a child, Chris, born of the relationship was adopted rather than aborted. Dan thinks that Jean, although aware of the relationship, knows nothing about the child and has been living under a cloud of guilt ever since. Everything goes wrong when Chris, now 22 years’ old arrives at the party.
Tension builds as other family members start to let their secrets out as well, culminating in the final arrival of the last guests of the evening!|
