In this deliciously wicked drama, a group of long-time friends play a dangerous game that will reveal hidden identities and secret relationships. In order to spice things up at a dinner party, every text message received is read out loud, and every incoming call answered on speaker. In Lior Ashkenazi’s directorial debut, he asks how well we really know those closest to us, and whether honesty is indeed the best policy. A triumphant directorial debut for actor Lior Ashkenazi featuring an irresistible ensemble cast! Warning: Strong language and sexual reference.
