In a thirtysomething exchange of angst, the son of a successful architect has agreed to paint his father's home. The parents are heading toward a divorce and want to sell their house. Since their son is a painter in need of work, they give him the job of putting a new coat of color on the walls. Some friends stop by to pay the son a visit and due to an unexpected thunderstorm are forced to hole up on the premises longer than they planned. The result is a night filled with conversation that leads to friction, opening old wounds and creating entanglements that will leave everyone changed by morning.
