Teiichi: Battle of Supreme High
Akira Nagai, 2017 (118m)
Private high school student Teiichi has one modest goal in life: to become prime minister of Japan. For this driven teenager, there’s one important step he must achieve on his path to the highest office in the land: being elected president of the school student council. He’s only a junior, however, so before his own campaign he must first throw his support behind one of this year’s candidates. Arrogant but charismatic Rorando emerges as a favourite, closely trailed by quiet genius Okuto. Teiichi tactically chooses a side, but soon finds himself caught in a campaign of dirty tricks and corruption. With the election growing ever nastier, Teiichi is forced to question both his current allegiances and his own future political ambitions.
