It's a battle of the minds when two couples get together for a weekend and trade vicious barbs and accusations. Wes and Nancy Westerlund (Strathairn and Bedelia), both Harvard professors, host Nancy's former boyfriend, musicologist Matt (Runbinek) and his young game theorist/computer scientist girlfriend, Kim (Feeney), for a weekend. Sexual tension and one-upmanship dominate from the beginning and escalate when Wes accuses Kim of stealing a $50 bill from his wallet.
