Nothing suggests that the dinner at the Garrauds would take such stormy turn. Élisabeth is playing Moroccan cooking, and Pierre is so busy looking for the keys for the basement that he gets his childhood friends Claude and Vincent involved in the game of “find what’s lost and have my eternal gratitude”.
