It’s the end of all things, and time is moving strangely.
The Count gathers his troupe for the annual hunt and parties which follow, perhaps for the last time. Left behind and locked away, his newest wife, Ariane, finds herself surrounded by strange figures and ancient secrets. Soon, she begins to question the strict boundaries she's been forced to exist within - can she break out of the story written for her?
