About the film:
Newlyweds Alex and Alice Javal are hosting a weekend-long New Year's Eve party for their closest friends at a remote cabin in the mountains. They expect Alex's best friend Nick, newly separated from his wife, to show up at the cabin with his girlfriend Lola. Alex and Nick's childhood friend Don is also set to arrive with his wife-of-many-years Lynn, as are Alice's pregnant friend Eve and her husband Steven.
Any thoughts of a perfect weekend are quickly thrown out the window as Nick arrives with only a cooler of meat and the news that he and Lola have recently called it quits. Don and Lynn show up a few minutes later deep in an argument. Finally, Eve and Steven make it to the cabin with a surprise guest in tow—Eve's friend Helena, who was a bridesmaid with Alice at Eve's wedding.
With tensions running high at the cabin, Alex tries to approach the young and beautiful Helena. When she rebuffs him, Alex becomes unhinged. He seems to forget about his new wife and the life she represents, and instead begins to wallow in the fact that nothing seems to go right for him. As it creeps closer to midnight on New Year's Eve, we realize that nearly everyone in the group of friends isn't who they appear to be—deep down, they all are a little lost in the world.
