At a large, tastefully-appointed townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York, while hosting a tenth anniversary party for himself and his wife, has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, the four couples who gather for the celebration are about to experience a severe attack of farce!
The host lies bleeding in the other room while his wife is nowhere in sight. Meanwhile 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.
