… or forever hold your peace

Four couples gather at a summer house for what husband and wife Ruby and Peter think is a long overdue weekend retreat but which their friends know is simply a pretense for convincing the constantly bickering couple to get a divorce. However, as they start their attempt at dismantling this unholy union, it soon becomes abundantly clear that Ruby and Peter are not the only ones going through a rough patch. Funny, sincere and highly relatable, THE INTERVENTION is a charming film about love, living together and what constitutes a successful relationship.
