Emotions are high and the atmosphere is tense while two couples struggle to celebrate Christmas together.
It's Christmas day. Brendan and wife, Lorraine lost their little boy the previous year. They host dinner for friends, Rosie and Dean, in an effort to ease the difficulty of the day, especially for Lorraine who can't seem to move on. Brendan constantly encourages Lorraine to have higher spirits. An accidental revelation that Rosie is pregnant increases tension, which leads to the decision for Rosie and Dean to leave early. That night, Lorraine lies on a bed in the child's old bedroom. Brendan peeps in the door but gets no acknowledgement from his wife. He decides not to enter. He pulls the door behind him.
