A modern political fairy tale, Comrade Mayor is a humorous, tongue-in-cheek political satire. Once upon a time in an Asian city where people call each other comrades, there lives a powerful maverick Mayor who is hungry for foreign investments. To make that city comes an ambitious Singaporean ambassador, determined to make her government’s stalled industrial park a success. Then the Mayor sues the ambassador’s brother, a hapless Singaporean correspondent who writes what the whole city only says in whispers – the Mayor manipulates the city’s courts. Add to that a horny Australian journalist who loves Asian hunks, a dissident seeking refuge in the Singapore embassy, and the Mayor’s fortune-teller, and the supposedly bound-to-win court case for the Mayor becomes an Asian modern-day fairy tale. But will anyone live happily ever after?
