SINOPSIS (Synopsis)

Con un humor surrealista, esta sátira política relata cómo el Rey de los Belgas es herido en Sarajevo, y despierta en un sanatorio en una isla croata. Todos le ocultan al contusionado Rey que la Unión Europea ha colapsado, y el director del sanatorio le impone un estricto régimen de descanso. Desde Viena llega la Doctora Ilse von Stroheim, arquitecta de la nacionalista Nova Europa, que ahora sustituye a la Unión, y de la que nuestro confuso “héroe” está llamado a ser Emperador. O no.

During a visit to Sarajevo, Nicolas III, King of the Belgians, suffers a gunshot wound to the ear. Hiding the King away in a sanatorium on a Croatian island, his entourage tries in vain to protect him from the news that the kingdom’s implosion has sparked the collapse of the European Union. The fragile monarch demands to return home at once, but is condemned instead to a strict regime of rest and rehabilitation. From Vienna arrives a delegation headed by the distinguished Dr. Ilse von Stroheim, who bears the thunderous news that the last King of the Belgians will become the first Emperor of Europe. The King decides to take matters into his own hands.
