Synopsis
Based on actual events, in 1768, German doctor Johann Struensee accompanies King Christian VII of Denmark on a year-long tour of Europe. Queen Caroline is impressed by the doctor and falls in love with him. Slowly, Struensee gains more and more influence and starts implementing reforms, based on his humanistic value system. This leads to his downfall, orchestrated by the aristocracy.
