King without a country

A film about the last years of Papua-leader Nicolaas Jouwe, once destined by the Dutch to become president of the independent republic of New-Guinea.

The 84-years old Nicolaas Jouwe has a difficult decision to make. His house in Delft is being demolished, now what? To a retirement home? Or spend the years of his life in the midst of his nationals on a chill hill in the Indonesian territory of Papua?
