Plot Summary
When a Montreal professor (Rémy Girard) and his wife (Dorothée Berryman) gather together six of their erudite friends for a holiday in the country, the conversation naturally turns to sex. The men brag about their promiscuity while their female counterparts dish on their own exploits at a nearby gym. But what was a fun and titillating topic devolves into the catalyst of hurt feelings and accusations when an unexpected dinner guest (Gabriel Arcand) reveals some shocking secrets.
