The bash is being thrown by a group of bohemian artists who are rather surprised Christopher has shown up — he’s the only stranger to take the bait and arrive for their party, in which their guest-of-honor is actually going to be killed in the name of creativity (and impressing a jaded patron who finances their projects).
