King of the Cruise follows Baron Ronald Busch Reisinger from Inneryne on one of his many decadent vacation cruises. At first glance, the Baron is a bombastic man. He boasts of his status and extravagant life stories, while parading across the deck with his Scottish quilt and royal cape. Gradually the documentary investigates something bigger; a human desire for recognition and validation.

This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 23, after its World Premiere.
