A sumptuous costume drama based on a true story of late 1760s Danish court intrigue. Teenage Queen Caroline Mathilde is married off to simpleton King Christian VII. Uninterested in his bride, he brutally fathers a child and heir and the insanity of his behaviour soon requires a doctor. German physician Johann is brought in to treat the King and falls in love with the well-liked Queen. Trusted by King Christian, Johann's responsibilities place him in a position to push through reforms that will transform Denmark forever.
