Passions flare and tempers rise when three couples cross paths at a country house one weekend. It begins with the arrival of Reg and his wife, Sarah. They’ve come to give Reg’s sister, Annie, a break from caring for their mother. However, Annie confides that she’s seeing someone -- her brother-in-law, Norman. Appalled, Sarah informs Norman’s wife, Ruth --and all hell breaks loose.
