Elizabeth, a Paris high school teacher, and her husband Pierre, a professor of literature at the Sorbonne, invite her brother Vincent and her childhood friend Claude over for dinner. When Vincent’s pregnant wife Anna is late, he makes a joke, saying he’s going to name the unborn baby Adolf in order to get a rise out of Pierre, whom he considers pompous. It works, upsetting Pierre and the rest of the dinner party, and by the time Anna arrives, the evening has fallen apart as skeletons are exposed, long-repressed resentments are brought to the forefront and tempers flare.
