Synopsis

At a gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get 'the story' straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
