In 1765 the young German doctor Johann Friedrich Struensee arrives at the Danish Court in Copenhagen as newly appointed Royal Physician for the mentally unstable King Christian the VII. Close to the power and the young Queen Caroline Mathilde, Struensee dreams of making a better world for everyone.

Struensee engages in a fatal romantic relation to Caroline Mathilde and his bold grasp of power ends bloody.
