ABOUT

Nickolo, a young barber who lives in a small Swedish village, falls in love with Astrid, whose grandmother gained millions by building a hair tonic empire. In order to marry Astrid, he has to prove to her family that he is worthy of her. As it turns out, however, Nickolo is the lost, true crown prince of Tirania, and he becomes involved in a coup to re-instate the monarchy in the country.

A lighthearted film, which jumps from one plot twist to another. With lots of humour, romance and suspense and with an international cast filled to the brim with charming characters and strong acting performances.
