After suffering a gunshot wound to the ear during an unfortunate incident in Sarajevo, the King of the Belgians wakes up on a Croatian island, once Tito’s famed summer residence. While he tries to escape from the island to save his Kingdom, an envoy arrives announcing that the King has been chosen to become the first Emperor of a nationalist Nova Europa. Fed up with others determining his destiny, the King takes matters into his own hands.
