When congressman Stan (Richard Gere) invites his troubled younger brother Paul (Steve Coogan) and his wife Claire (Laura Linney) to join him and his wife (Rebecca Hall) for dinner, the stage is set for a tense night. Stan and Paul's 16-year-old sons have committed a horrible crime that has shocked the country, and their parents must now decide what action to take.
