"A group of forty-something friends, lovers, husbands and wives gather for dinner during the annual 'Fête de la musique' in Paris, and the atmosphere couldn't be friendlier, with great food, wine and conversation. But at a dinner party, appearances rule. People get dressed up, they laugh, tell tales, show off, share memories and plans.

But the masks will fall as soon as everyone heads for home."--Container
