The Supreme Leader

THE SUPREME LEADER

Full Length Comedy
3M, 1F

THE SUPREME LEADER is a coming of age story centered on Kim Jong-Un’s early days at an international school in Switzerland.  While in school, North Korea’s heir apparent learns how to become a dictator by spying on his classmate Sophie under the guise of friendship.  To his dismay, the more he spies on her, the more he discovers the genuine friendship they share together.  This ninety minute political comedy compares Eastern and Western cultures through the snow globe lens of neutral Switzerland and explores the folly of two clashing cultures as Kim Jong-Un learns what it takes to become the next Supreme Leader of North Korea.
