TUESDAY, MARCH 20: TEIICHI NO KUNI (119 MIN) (2017) 帝一の國
TEIICHI -Battle of Supreme High-

The 800 elite students of the top private school in Japan – Kaitei High School – represent the sharpest young minds in the     country. Kaitei’s alumni have powerful connections in the political and financial world, and its top student — the student council president — is all but promised a future cabinet position. At the beginning of the new school year in April, ambitious freshman Teiich Akaba joins the ranks of Kaitei elites as the top student from his graduating class. His dream is to “become the prime minister and create his own kingdom.” But in order to realize this dream, he absolutely must become student council president.
