“In some distant future, a socialite with the most tenuous of relationships bounces from activity to activity with only the slimmest idea of what is going on. Bringing along his sister’s mini-elephant and his butler, he consumes prodigious amounts of alcohol and still manages to survive a coup masquerading as a wild party.”
