On the brink of WWII, the record-breaking aviator, André Jurieux, safely lands at a small airport crammed with reporters, only to come face to face with his worst fear: the object of his desire, Christine–a blonde noblewoman and wife of the affluent Marquis de la Cheyniest, Robert–is not there to greet him. Intent on winning her back, André accepts his friend Octave’s invitation for a lavish hunting weekend at the aristocrat’s palatial country estate at La Coliniere, among hand-picked guests and the mansion’s servants; however, intrigue, rivalries, and human weaknesses threaten to expose both royalty and paupers alike. Who will breach the unwritten rules of the game?
