One day, she receives an invitation from the Count – the only wealthy man in the land – to dine with him at a lavish feast in his majestic mansion. Hayley has heard of these occasions before. Each time, the guest returns home – unharmed, but silent, guilty, and changed.
She resolves to turn her invitation into a career opportunity. But as Hayley takes her place at the Count’s table, she is unprepared for what he has in store for the feast.
