A popular congressman invites his younger brother and his wife to join him and his spouse for dinner in one of the most upscale restaurants in the city. Throughout the evening, it turns out it's not just a friendly get-together, but a way to definitely solve a terrible family secret. The seemingly firm bonds gradually crumble and the natures of the four people show their true colours. Each of the diners will show how far they're willing to go to protect their loved ones.
