King George Coulam rules over the Texas Renaissance Festival as its founder, elected mayor, and employer to thousands. But as his power – and the festival’s coffers – have grown, Coulam has hardened into an object of fear. When King George suddenly announces his retirement to focus on his love life, a battle erupts amongst the festival’s body politic. The festival’s general manager and heir apparent must fight for his place in the kingdom against a kettle-corn kingpin and a former elephant trainer, both eager to remake the festival in their own image. Their feud ascends to Shakespearian heights in this three-part docu-fantasia from director Lance Oppenheim, Elara Pictures, and HBO.
