The film tells the story of the last offspring of a powerful German family, whose cannons killed countless people in two world wars: Arndt von Bohlen and Halbach - " the Last Krupp. Unwilling to fulfill the expectations of both his family and their company, this homosexual industrialistâ€™s son waived his inheritance of around three and a half billion marks. Or, to see it differently, was pushed into relinquishing a world dynasty because he was unable to lead it. With an annual settlement of two million German marks Arndt withdrew into another world. In his residences on the German island of Sylt, Marrakesh, Castle BlÃ¼hnbach in Salzburg and Palm Beach the extravagant bon vivant gathered a fairy tale royal household around him - and yet remained a lonely and withdrawn man for his whole life.
