Deputy mayor, Charlie, and his wife are to host a glamorous anniversary party at their home. Chris and Ken Gorman are the first of eight guests to arrive to find Charlie wounded in bed, his wife missing, the domestic help gone and unprepared food in the kitchen. Instead of taking Charlie to the hospital and notifying the police, Chris and Ken decide it is more important to try to protect Charlie's reputation.
As more of the friends arrive, Chris and Ken attempt to keep what happened a secret, but that proves difficult and it all goes ‘bottom-up’ and chaotic as this hapless group fall over themselves spreading rumours, concocting crazy stories and having the lies grow out of control in an attempt to continue the cover up.
Then the police arrive!
