Plot Synopsis

After an angry adult slaps someone else's misbehaving child at a backyard barbecue, this single event has shattering repercussions on a group of family and friends. By advancing the story from the perspective of a different character each week, THE SLAP explores what happens when the veil of civility that binds us as a society is set aside, while addressing the universal questions of parenting, the rights of children, race, class, sexuality, and the different perspectives of men and women. DirecTV aired the U.S. premiere of this Australian series on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 on the Audience Network at 10pm ET/PT.
