The year is 1489, the location, a grand castle in the forests near Budapest, Hungary. The tables are set for a grand feast, but inside, everyone lies dead on the chairs, the benches, or the floor. Two people are left living, the master and mistress of the castle. They make sure everyone is dead, and then commit suicide themselves by impaling themselves on the master's sword, believing that "the evil" will be finished. As the master lays dying, he hears a baby wake up and cry in adjacent room, and he realizes that he failed to make sure everyone was dead, and the mass suicide was all for nothing.Fast forward five hundred years, to 1989. On the banks of the blue Danube, Gail and David make an initially awkward acquaintance. They walk back to their hotel, where the rest of the characters are introduced. First we meet Jonathan, the tennis player, and Mary Lou, the blonde bimbo, an aspiring actress. Richard, who has been invited to see a castle by himself in spite of his wife's protestations of being excluded. Anna, a Scandinavian actress. At the bar, we meet Katherine, a standoffish doctor, and Ray, a laid-back Australian. Next is an unnamed professor. All of them are attending the opening of the castle, having been selected from many applicants. Last to arrive is Count Isht Van Beze
