Based on Herman Koch’s New York Times bestselling novel, this taut morality play chronicles the downward spiral of a bourgeois family, unhinging at its foundation. Massimo (Alessandro Gassmann) and Paolo (Luigi Lo Cascio) are brothers of opposing moral character – Massimo is an overconfident lawyer and Paolo, an altruistic pediatrician. Despite their conflicting lifestyles, the brothers and their wives meet for a traditional monthly dinner at a luxurious restaurant, sharing polite conversation centered around food and wine and occasionally politics. This fragile balancing act of respectability and class is shattered when a local news outlet releases closed circuit footage of their children performing a grisly act of violence. As tensions reach a boiling point within the family, Massimo and Paolo are forced to decide whether or not to protect their children or have them face the damaging consequences of their crimes.
