In France each year 800 000 births, 800 000 names, 800 000 arguments! "Le Prénom" is about a group of five friends, around their 40’s, who are having a Moroccan dinner get-together one night. The hosts are Pierre - a literature professor - and his dutiful wife Elisabeth also called Babou. Claude is a professional trombonist who was Elisabeth's best friend. Vincent is Elisabeth's joker of a brother, whose wife Anna is pregnant with their first child. It was the matter of naming Vincent and Anna's unborn baby boy that starts us off in this adventure of bitter wit and sharp barbs all within the confines of Pierre's apartment. From a heated argument about the name Vincent plans to give his son, their conversation devolves into more serious and painful matters about each other's secrets they have been keeping from each other all these thirty odd years they have known each other as close friends. An unborn's unlikely moniker is the simple but effective motor of "What's in a Name?”
