Eisenstein believes “Everyone fiddles their taxes… don’t they?”, but his misdemeanours have caught up with him and he is off to prison for a whole eight days. His bored wife Rosalinde can’t wait to get him out of their plush West London pad so she can re-kindle her passion with ex-lover Alfred. Meanwhile their maid Adele is determined to get into Prince Orlofsky’s party – everyone who is anyone in the entertainment industry will be there, and Adele just knows she is going to be a star…
In a world where everyone is out for themselves, sometimes the only thing to do is throw morality to the wind and dance ‘til dawn!
