Cinco de Mayo Mayhem

Isadora Frankston is a distinguished socialite in Del Rio West – an upper class neighborhood in the bustling city of Palo Verde. Isadora is hosting an annual Mexican fiesta in honor of Cinco de Mayo. She's breaking out the chips and salsa, hiring the mariachi band, and prepping the dance floor for fun times with her friends & family.

In hopes to become the town’s premier party host, she has reached out to all of her new friends with invitations this year. Sadly, Isadora has no idea she has invited over a disaster in the making. Her friends have entangled themselves into a web of scandals, ill-will, and horrible misfortunes. Unfortunately for Isadora, she isn't as integrated into society as she might believe. You've received your invitation, have picked out your most festive attire, and are crossing your fingers that your enemies didn’t get an invite to this party. This is where your story begins.
