Gabe and Nat have left their wonderful old life and moved to an area where people seem to oscillate somewhere between highly-strung and psychopathic. The reason they left isn't immediately clear but they're here now and trying to make the best of it.

They go to one dinner party hosted by neighbour Helene and her husband Sasha with fellow prisoners Marty and her girlfriend Angie. And so begins a descent into hell and goulash, from which no one will ever fully recover.
