When comes the weekend, everything is possible… even the worst.

Claire, worried, checks her phone again. It’s past eight and her boyfriend, who’s supposed to come and fetch her, is nowhere to be found. They’ve been dating for six months now and Claire knows him well. Medhi’s always on time.

François is always meticulously organized. It’s thanks to him that the Saturday night parties became the must-be event which his neighbors, carefully selected, wouldn’t miss for anything in the world. The perfect moment to relax…

In the midst of the woods, Medhi is naked. Shaking. In spite of the darkness, he spots several people around him. They all seem to be partying, bursting into laughter… but what do they expect from him?

Anthony Bussonnais offers us a veritable page-turner. Highly topical, completely addictive and awfully nerve-racking, Un samedi soir entre amis is breathtaking.
