Nicolas III is on a state visit in Istanbul when Wallonia, Belgium’s southern half declares its independence. The King must return to save his kingdom. But a powerful solar storm distrusts all telecommunication and air traffic. The King and his entourage are now stuck in Istanbul. With the help of a British filmmaker they manage to escape from Turkey, incognito among a group of Bulgarian singers. Thus begins an odyssey through the Balkans in which the King discovers real life and himself.
