"In Victorian England, a group of university friends has entered into a pact, pooling their money in a drunken haze, where the last survivor of the group inherits the accumulated wealth. Now years later, only a few members of the group remain. These former friends try to outwit and outlast their fellows, who are doing the same to ensure their investment by any means necessary." ---
