The absurd story of a lonely Scottish baron

International Competition

Baron Ronald Busch Reisinger of Inneryne spends his time on outrageous cruise ships amongst romantic couples, wealthy families, hardworking staff, and retired elderly. On one such cruise we follow the Baron; parading on the decks in his feudal quilt and king’s cape, he leaves a first impression of being proud and arrogant, bragging about his status, wealth, and extravagant life. But there is something underneath his swagger; a universal human desire for recognition and validation.
