Two couples have dinner together at a restaurant. The men are the Lohman brothers: Paul, a suspended history teacher, and the charming aspiring prime minister Serge. The foursome constantly evades discussing the horrible topic they gathered here for: a crime their children committed. Who knows what? And how far will you go as a parent to protect your child? This psychological thriller is based upon Herman Koch’s eponymous international bestseller.
