DVD THE Slap begins in the friendly setting of a barbecue in an Australian backyard. A man slaps a child who is not his son. The child's parents are so upset they vow to take the man to court. One cousin is forced to testify against another. Couples are caught in the crossfire. Beliefs are tested and relationships strained.

The story of The Slap unfolds through the points of view of eight characters.

The court case proceeds, affairs begin and end. There is a pregnancy and marriages morph and change. Each character's life is profoundly affected by the slap. Whose side are you on? Out now, pounds 11.99.
