Kaitei High is unlike any other high school. An elite institution attended only by sons from the highest social rungs, it provides them with an expedited training in reaching the top of the political and military worlds. Thriving in this highly competitive microcosm is Teiichi Akaba (Masaki Suda) who must ally himself with the right candidate running for the next class president, and steadily climb the social ladder if he is to achieve his ultimate goal of becoming Japan’s prime minister. He will stop at nothing to achieve his aims but his will his obsessive pursuit of power alienate those closest to him? Based on a manga series (2010-2016) by Usamaru Furuya, Akira Nagai’s film smartly satirises the realities of national political campaigns by injecting quirky absurdist humour into the briberies, sabotage, and scandals launched by these student factions.

Directed by Akira Nagai, 2017, 118 min, English Subtitles
