Storyline

Edit
Plot Summary

Semi-biographical narrative in which the protagonist, director Hans Hylkema, searches for the historical past of Indonesian President Sukarno. In the archive of the Theater Institute, Hylkema discovers a short film in which President Sukarno shines in a self-written play, performed at the Tropical Institute. Everywhere there is unbelief because officially the president has never been in the Netherlands. Then follows a reconstruction of the best kept secret of the palace Soestdijk: the never-known visit of Sukarno to Queen Juliana in the spring of 1949. In the form of a documentary, the discovery of Soekarno's self-written play is framed with historical acrhief material and fictional play. The story of a charismatic leader who loved his country, people, women, art and especially himself.
