From the appearance of their elegant home in the suburbs of Dublin, the Cahills seem to be the picture of happiness. Young Emma has recently begin to follow her father Aidan and her mother Michelle into the world of modeling, and in order to celebrate Emma's twenty-first birthday party her parents have arranged a lavish party. As the big day draws near, it's gradually revealed that husband and wife lead separate lives, and that both seem more interested in pursuing outside relationships than focusing on their marriage.
