“If you had a grudge against me you’d tell me, wouldn’t you?”
The warm summer air turns to poison for a group of wealthy holiday-makers when their dirty laundry is hung out to dry. As the season thickens with wine and whispered secrets, the Basovs' idyllic retreat becomes a prison of stifling excess. And some want out.
