A celebratory dinner ends in bloodshed and chaos when secrets spill out over the vol-au-vents. Beginning as a witty comedy replete with sharp-tongued dialogue, THE PARTY later veers off into tragedy.

Janet has just been appointed minister in the shadow cabinet - the crowning achievement of her political career. She and her husband Bill plan to celebrate this with a few close friends. The guests arrive at their home in London but the party takes an unexpected turn for the worse when Bill suddenly makes two explosive revelations that shock Janet and everyone present to the core. Love, friendships, political convictions and a whole way of life are now called into question. Underneath their cultivated liberal left-wing surface people are seething. Their dispute leads to the big guns being brought out - even in a literal sense. (source: www.berlinale.de)
