A satirical farce. 


Following a future coronation the entire Royal Family is in need of rest and relaxation.  They all visit Tuttacappei, a tropical island and luxury resort that is a thought to be an extinct volcano.


When the volcano suddenly erupts the entire Royal Family is apparently destroyed. Who will be the heir to the British throne?


Genealogists discover that Trevor, a communist, is next in line to the throne. He is politically opposed to any monarchy but he decides that here is a chance to go down in history as the first communist king.


Trevor finds being king is not so easy when messages from the Kremlin are delivered by one of the palace staff. Chaos ensues.
