Victorian London, 1899. Seigfried Wallace, a lowly insurance clerk, is invited by Mr. James Spall, a friend from his upper management, to The Gaiety, a private gentlemen’s club for a evening’s social engagement. Somewhat begrudgingly, Seigfried accepts. Soon after, James disappears, and Seigfried sets about trying to connect his friend’s disappearance with the club. A second (somewhat mysterious) invite to a Christmas Eve gathering at the club draws Seigfried closer to the reasons for James’ disappearance, as well as engaging him in the club’s most secret purposes—those made privy only to its highest, distinguished members.
