    • Synopsis
    • When the overbearing wife of the Bulgarian president decides to give a reception in London, the newly-appointed ambassador and her protégé is given one single task – to persuade Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to attend.
      While trying to contain the complete anarchy reigning at the Bulgarian embassy, the ambassador jumps at the unique chance to accomplish his impossible mission when, at a lavish reception, the British MP Sir Dean Carver hands him the card of a PR agency with contacts within the highest circles of British society. What the ambassador doesn’t know though, is that the ‘agency’ actually provides the services of look-alike doubles, who perform fantasies of a more intimate nature.
      As the grand reception approaches, he starts to discover that in the absurd world he lives in, the more something is botched up, the more it falls into its proper place. Forced to play a dangerous game, the ambassador embarks on an amazing adventure, which culminates in a hilarious hymn of human folly and vanity.
