Mansour has definitely gone too far this time, so his friends decide he must be punished. Hanging their pal is probably illegal, but they proceed with their plans anyway, confident that they have the moral right to determine the appropriate action. But executions are complicated affairs. What music should be played? Which is the best font to use on the invitations? This brilliant jet-black comedy considers a horror that is all too common in today’s world.
