How well do we really know those close to us? During a dinner party, seven friends decide to play a dangerous game. Each attendee places their cell phone on the table and agrees to make all texts and calls public in an attempt to prove that they have nothing to hide. What at first seems like a playful distraction between friends quickly turns into something much more toxic as the messages begin to reveal how little they may know about the partners and acquaintances surrounding them.

Ognuno di noi ha tre vite: una pubblica, una privata ed una segreta. Un tempo quella segreta era ben protetta nell’archivio della nostra memoria, oggi nelle nostre sim. Cosa succederebbe se quella minuscola schedina si mettesse a parlare? Una brillante commedia sull’amicizia, sull’amore e sul tradimento, che porterà quattro coppie di amici a confrontarsi e a scoprire di essere “Perfetti sconosciuti”.
