Whiskey, cigars and rich food paired with playing cards. The obvious frame of a stylish and comfortably get-together. However in this case the attendees do not play for fun and their standing but for their own life. Directors statement: "In our film the protagonists feel and see an immediate impact on their actions. Still, the structure of their behaviour doesn´t change. The film shows what happens when resources run out for everyone. If not only mirrors our society, it´s also a very personal character analysis on egoism, compassion and the drive for change."
