The Slap Synopsis
It’s Hector’s 40th birthday, and his wife is throwing him a big party with lots of friends, family, and food for what will undoubtedly be a happy, celebratory day. Or so they think. As Hector tries to navigate family politics, awkward friendships, and the younger woman he’s secretly seeing on the side, the built-up tension explodes when Hector’s hotheaded cousin slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. Everyone is understandably stunned, and the party abruptly ends – with the child’s parents vowing legal action as they leave. But what the hosts and guests don’t know is that this moment will ignite a chain of events that will uncover long-buried secrets within this group of friends and family… and vigorously challenge the core values of everyone involved.
From writer Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers & Sisters), executive producers Walter F. Parkes & Laurie MacDonald (Gladiator, Men in Black franchise) and director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right ), comes this unflinching look at how one little slap… can have a huge impact.
