It is 1913 - just prior to England's entry into World War I - and Edwardian England is about to vanish into history.
A group of men and women gather at Sir Randolph Nettleby's estate for a shooting party.
Opulent, adulterous, moving assuredly through the rituals of eating and slaughter, they are a dazzlingly obtuse and brilliantly decorative finale of an era.
