Noni and Tamar, a young couple at a crisis point in their marriage, hear a loud disturbance on the street, followed by a knock on the door. Going against his wife's instincts, Noni opens the door to find two aggressive, angry youths on the doorstep who force their way into the couple's home. What follows is the knife-edge drama that unfolds between the four, one which lasts only twenty minutes but which will change all of their lives forever.

In preparation for Christmas, a local service-club holds their annual charity event. Disadvantaged households are drawn by lottery and members of the organisation then visit these families in order to deliver a financial donation. It is on such an occasion that two respectable men Mister Chappuis and Mister Da Silva encounter the Rapin family. On this night, however, nothing goes according to plan. Each member of the Rapin family expresses a different attitude towards accepting their generosity. Sometimes the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
