One last chance to become who we were supposed to be...

The trip was supposed to be the perfect holiday. Six friends, reuniting after two decades, spending the weekend in a beautiful riad in Marrakesh.

Only, these friends are linked by more than their university days. Together, they've kept a dark secret that changed the course of all their lives forever.

And as the truth threatens to surface in the stifling Morrocan heat, they all begin to question what really happened that terrible night twenty years ago...
