Alfred Rott’s (Spall) reputation as a womanizing, foul-mouthed right wing genius follows him like a late afternoon shadow. After falling out with authorities over a new Arts Centre in Brussels, Rott is invited to an exclusive orgy where he is handed a once-in-a-lifetime invitation to visit the wealthy and eccentric recluse on the island of Malta who calls himself 'The Grand Duke Of Corsica'. The Grand Duke (Stormare) commissions Alfred to build him a personalized mausoleum in preparation for his own death.
A malaria outbreak on the island causes the entire population to flee. Fires break out and pandemonium ensues. Alfred must remain however, to finish the project that may be the greatest, yet most invisible, creation of his remarkable career.
