From his deathbed in the auspiciously erotic year of 2069, King Alfredo is transported back to our present day, when a walk through a scorched, phallic forest prompts the sensitive and cherubic prince – not yet beset by the responsibilities of ruling – to pursue firefighter training in service of an increasingly overheated planet, despite ridicule and dissuasion from those around him. At the academy, young Alfredo meets and falls in love with instructor Afonso. The fiery passion of the interracial couple is inextricable from the spectres of class, race, and colonialism swirling around them, including the threat of Alfredo’s impending and unavoidable monarchical duties.
