This thrilling movie revolves around five married men who secretly share a luxurious loft for their extramarital affairs. The loft serves as a safe haven for their affairs, until one winter morning when they discover the body of a young woman in the apartment. None of the friends know the woman, but their world is turned upside down as they try to find out what happened.
As the men investigate the crime, mistrust and betrayal start to rise.

The film is a roller coaster ride of suspicion, mistrust, and secrets that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
