King Nicolas III is a lonely soul who has the distinct feeling he’s living the wrong life. He embarks on a state visit to Istanbul with a British filmmaker, Duncan Lloyd, who has been commissioned by the Palace to shoot a documentary intended to polish the monarch’s rather dull image. The news breaks that Wallonia, Belgium’s southern half, has declared its independence. The King, determined and purposeful, must return home at once to save his kingdom. And “…for once,” he declares, “…he will write his own speech.” As they rally to depart, a solar storm strikes the earth causing the collapse of communication systems and airspace shut downs – No phones. No planes. To make matters worse, Turkish security coldly dismisses the King’s suggestion that they return home by road. But the King has no intention of waiting out this storm. Lloyd, sniffing an opportunity of historical proportions, hatches a dubious escape plan that involves flowery dresses and singing Bulgarians.

Director:
Peter Brosens, Jessica Woodworth
