The Ball of Ages, thrown at a mysterious mansion within a high-walled estate, promises a devilish night of frivolity and freedom for the mortals in attendance, but when the Grim Reaper herself is invited to the soiree, things quickly go off the rails. Her siblings and fellow horsemen have a devious plan for an evening of chaos and destruction. While they'll enjoy it immensely, the unwitting guests are in for a shocking surprise. What exactly do the heralds of the Apocalypse have planned?
