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.
