In the tradition of director Gabriel Range's Death of a President, Danish filmmaker Morten Hartz Kaplers teams with screenwriter Allan Miltor Jakobson to offer a politically slanted mockumentary detailing the assassination of Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. As interviews with Rasmussen's family, friends, and colleagues delve ever deeper into the right-wing leader's life and career, the details of the arrest and "accidental" murder of his accused killer - a troubled anarchist/musician named Emil (Kaplers) - gradually begin to suggest that not only was the Prime Minister a homosexual, but that he and the gunman were lovers as well.
