In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Erinlandia is divided between 5 very bright and loyal employees in the heart of the Old Port. Each year 10 wines, 5 red and 5 white, representatives from wines around the globe, are chosen as representatives of the Thirsty Games. Mostly for enjoyment, in time for the holidays, the evil Queen Erin and the Princess of Lori conspire to win The Thirsty Games. The 5 participants (a.k.a. employees of Old Port Wine) are forced to choose a red and a white wine that they think the citizens will pick as their wines for the festive holiday season.
