Logline

5 WOMEN

Five old girlfriends meet once a year for a weekend get-together in Southern France, to catch up together in a relaxed atmosphere. But when an intruder interrupts their getaway, the weekend threatens to spiral out of control. A film for women, girlfriends and, as director Olaf Kraemer puts it, “for men who like to watch beautiful women doing naughty things.”
