From director Gaspar Noe comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one night. A troupe of young dancers gathers in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Afterward, they begin an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as they discover they've been pounding sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and anarchy, Noe observes crushes, rivalries, and violence.
