The film was nominated for seven Leo awards.

In 24 short hours, Jack goes to prison for five years.  Tonight, for the first time since the sudden death of their parents one year earlier, the family is summoned to their ancestral home for Jack's farewell dinner.  What begins as a civil, if not joyful, reunion filled with food, drink and acerbic conversation, quickly devolves into a morally questionable whirlwind of regret, reversals, and revelations.  As they duke it out in a half-savage half-civilized fashion, these characters, and the truths behind their long history of conflict and tragedy, are slowly and surprisingly revealed.

The film was written and directed by Terry Miles.
