A glimpse of the deca­dent and bizarre world of cruise ships. Featuring an eccen­tric Scot­tish baron, on a mission to be recognised.
A rich and extrav­a­gant Scot­tish baron spends his days on luxu­rious cruise ships, surrounded by romantic couples, well-off fami­lies, slaving staff and relaxed retirees. A floating micro-commu­nity that is appealing to one and repul­sive to another. While baron Ronald Busch Reisinger van Inneryne osten­ta­tiously parades across the deck, in his kilt and royal cape, under the surface the universal human desire for recog­ni­tion and vali­da­tion seems to be at play.
