The classmates have gathered for their 15th high school reunion, reminiscing about their high school adventures. As the evening progresses, different dinner courses and drinks are brought out and the conversations become more open, yet there is one topic that everyone keeps avoiding, until the alcohol encourages them to mention the shocking letter they have all received. The letter is a torturous confessional of one of their former classmates in which she reveals the brutal abuse she endured as a child and during high school. The film follows a group of people who over the course of one evening try to find a way to discuss the realization that has shaken them to their core.
