The Dinner

On a summer's evening in Amsterdam, two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. The conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said; with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.
