Vino Veritas

It’s Halloween night, but everyone is dropping their masks.  When two couples drink a strange blue Peruvian wine together, the evening turns eventful as their traditions and their relationships to one another begin to unravel.  Will the truth set them free or is it another trap to escape?  A dark comedy about the perils of honesty.
