It’s 2015 and Sultan Ibrahim of Johor has been the Sultan of Johor for 5 years. In that time, he’s travelled the length and breadth of Johor. He’s met his subjects and heard their concerns. He’s won the hearts of his people. But what he hasn’t done is had his coronation.
A coronation is not compulsory to formalise a sultan’s position. In fact, the last coronation in Johor occurred about half-a-century ago. But Sultan Ibrahim wants to give his people the celebration they deserve, so he’s ordered a royal coronation.
This documentary will show the intricate preparations for the coronation, from the military parade to the preparation of food. It will also offer a glimpse into the personal life of the Sultan as he juggles being a king with being a father to his children.
