Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
The setting: a Thanksgiving potluck dinner for more than 30 Americans and Germans living in Berlin. The key actors: two Germans and an American tasked with seeing that the main act — two stuffed and cooked turkeys with cabbage and potatoes sides — went off flawlessly, from the order with the butcher to the delivery to a fourth floor apartment. The guests would bring vegetarian dishes so that, meat-eater or not, no one would go hungry.
Well, at least the whole production looked good on paper.
