Once upon a time there was, and there still is today… the Palace Hotel. An extraordinary castle designed in the early 1900s by a mystical architect, settled in the Swiss Alps, in the midst of a snowy valley. The Palace Hotel has a gothic and fairytale-like atmosphere where wealthy, pampered, and guests meet from all over the world. This year, a unique event has brought them all together: the New Year’s Eve party of 2000. In service to their extravagant needs is a horde of waiters, bellboys, chefs, and receptionists.
