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.

Television / Streaming Review
It will be interesting to see if THE SLAP can maintain the early momentum but, for now, I’m eager to see episode two which bodes well for the show.
