In the shadow of personality cults, barbarity, absurdity and madness, very often the human beings behind the influential leaders disappears. The science fiction writer and founding father of the Scientology Church, L. Ron Hubbard, and the late Beloved Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Il, meet by accident in Venice in the fifties. Spontaneous sympathy soon turns into a very special, deep friendship. From petty juvenile jealousy over a bumpy lifetime with setbacks and frictions until their deaths, the uninhibited reader finds curiosity and banalities, mixed with serious world political decisions. Last but not least, the reading illuminates connections and facts which we now perceive as the legacies of these two men.
