On the night of March the 2nd 1953, a man is dying. A terrible
stroke is wracking his entire body. He is drooling. He is pissing
himself. He is about to kick the bucket and if you play your cards
right, his job is yours to take. The man is Joseph Stalin - dictator,
tyrant, butcher, as well as Secretary General of the USSR.
The Death of Stalin is a satire about the days before the funerals
of the Nation’s Father. Days that shine a sardonic light on all the
madness, depravity and inhumanity of totalitarianism. Days that
will see the men surrounding him fight to inherit his supreme
power. And it’s all based on true events.
