With his perfect family and upbringing, Richard appears to have it all. But when he thinks that his long-term girlfriend, Sasha, and best-friend, Jonah, are having an affair, it sends him into a fit of rage that leaves Jonah a bloody mess. Once Jonah and Sasha convince Richard the allegations are false, Richard tries to buy back their trust by taking them out for a trip on his family’s yacht. Tension boils-over once out to sea and the yacht’s engine fails.
