However, after two years of struggling through the corona virus crisis, difficulties with investors wanting their money back, films not distributed and a difficult divorce settlement, Jonathan must sell his company with all its assets. Unaware of the situation his new wife decides to throw him a surprise party to celebrate his win at Cannes, inviting all the heads of the local film industry, colleagues and family. When Jonathan finds out about it he decides to wire the whole house with cameras.

Jonathan watches the party and all that goes on through the monitors while at the same time liaising with his lawyer to save his business. Will he succeed?
