Martha and George, a middle-aged couple, after completing college entertainment in small hours, host a young couple, Nick and Honey. That night, the false idols of a scholarly lowly life in the provincial university are being uncovered. Choosing an unconventional time for conventional socializing opens a dramatic space for a series of scenes that allow us to look behind the scenes of the socially accepted code of conduct.
The night in which the barrier of social rules breaks down, under the guise of excessive alcoholism, those who guarantee the so-called success of malignant safety, ruthlessly question the reverse of this culture and civilization. Like us, it’s easier for these characters to exist under the disguise of normal life rather than taking off masks and risking the irreversible loss of their own support in the much-needed living illusions. And that night, probably until the next morning, the masks are taken off. But honesty does not bring catharsis, it opens the space for pain and suffering.
