Pete is ready to leave his youthful indulgences behind and settle down with his girlfriend. When his uni friends invite him for a country weekend away to celebrate his birthday he finds their immature ways haven’t changed and he’s baffled by their spontaneous invitation to a feral stranger from the local pub to join them.

With the atmosphere turning from tense to terrifying to surreal, Pete reaches breaking point. Is he being punished? Is he being paranoid? Or is he just part of some sick joke?

'Cringe comedy hurtles toward psychological horror in All My Friends Hate Me, Andrew Gaynord’s delicious, fearless dive into age-related angst and chronic insecurity' - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
