Chris gets very much disturbed when he learns about this event. Thus the young couple hosts their Thanksgiving dinner.
Chris’s mother made him promise that he would refrain from discussing politics. Chris is very much saddened due to the breakdown happening in society all over this oath. All of his family members have signed that oath, including his wife, Kai. Only he is the one who is left. Two government officials visit him. Now, what was the reason that they had to come to his house? This you’ll need to find by watching The Oath.
