Synopsis: Nora and her husband Ken host a birthday party in their vacation house by the sea. The guest of honor arrives first but, due to some inexplicable ailment, retires upstairs. The other guests, Veronica (returning from an eight-year-spell in Europe) and Marc (an unfaithful married man) complete the party.
As the night unravels, one of the guests inexplicable dies.
Will the marriage of Ken and Nora, marred by Ken’s repressed subservience and Nora’s obsessive jealousies, last the evening? And will the nostalgic Veronica, and the childish Marc will find peace? Before dawn, the remaining friends indulge in sex and slices of cake, as they grapple with their own relationships, their friend's death, and the secret of happiness.
When the sun appears, who of these "contenders" will ultimately find what they are looking for?
THE CONTENDERS won the audience award at the Honolulu Film Festival in 2010 and toured international festivals in the US and Italy.
