Zwei Elfjährige prügeln sich auf einem Spielplatz, einem der beiden Jungen werden dabei Zähne ausgeschlagen. Die Eltern des "Opfers", Penelope und Michael haben die Eltern des "Übeltäters", Nancy und Alan, eingeladen, um den Vorfall wie vernünftige Menschen zu klären. Was als friedlicher Austausch über Zivilisation, Gewalt und die Grenzen der Verantwortlichkeit beginnt, entwickelt sich schon bald zu einem Streit voller Widersprüche und grotesker Vorurteile. Und schliesslich platzt die dünne Haut der bürgerlichen Kultiviertheit auf: Vier Erwachsene geraten aus der Fassung. Brutal und rücksichtslos werden Grenzen überschritten, provoziert und schliesslich deutlich, dass sie alle hinter ihrer zivilisierten Maske einen "Gott des Gemetzels" anbeten. Auf dem Schlachtfeld dieser Tragikomödie versinkt am Ende nicht nur ein Handy in der Tulpenvase... (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
