Claude Pichon – Claude is a good-looking smart and sophisticated character.

Andre Bouville – Andre is a very successful man who has little patience. He is aggressive and temperamental.
Mariette Levieux – Mariette is a beautiful, strong woman who makes a great first appearance. She hides her flaws.
Yvonne Fouchet – Yvonne is a nice character, but she is also very shy and somewhat flaky.
Gabrielle Bouville – Gabrielle is a charming energetic character. She is a free spirit.
Here is a dinner party served up in a chaotic mode that only a master of comedy could create. Five people are invited to dine at a first rate restaurant. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives.
