Starring Shirley Henderson (The Mandalorian, Meek’s Cutoff), Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Resident Alien), Rufus Sewell (The Diplomat, The Man in the High Castle, Dark City), Olivia Williams (The Crown, An Education, Rushmore), and Indira Varma (Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning, Obi-Wan Kenobi), a brilliant comedy about a successful London couple who face the moral dilemma of their lives when an uninvited dinner guest does the unthinkable.

Sarah (Henderson) and Tom (Tudyk) are a married couple in terrible financial trouble. On the brink of losing everything, they’ve managed to find a buyer for their stylish London home. When their best friends Richard (Sewell) and Beth (Williams) come round for a final dinner, an uninvited old friend, Jessica (Varma), tags along.

After a seemingly trivial argument, Jessica hangs herself in the garden. Tom goes to call the police when Sarah realizes if the buyer finds out, the sale will collapse, meaning definite financial ruin for their family. The only solution - to convince Richard and Beth to take Jessica’s body to her flat and make it look like she killed herself there. If they’re clever enough about it, what could possibly go wrong?
