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 has declared its independence.

JESSICA WOODWORTH and PETER BROSENS both hail from documentary but are most widely acclaimed for their three feature films that they wrote, directed and co-produced together: Khadak (Winner of Venice’s Lion of the Future 2006), Altiplano (Cannes Critics’ Week 2009) and The Fifth Season (Venice Official Competition 2012).
