# 2 Frederick, Leader of the Youth Liberation League

| November 3, 2011 | 1 Comment

Elevator Pitch: It’s an evil Richie Rich with the Goonies meets Hitler youth directed by Wes Anderson. Eventually Caspar the Friendly Ghosts gets thrown in too.

Eight year old Frederick is the unstable black sheep of the world’s wealthiest (and most delightfully eccentric) family. After polling poorly in focus groups, Frederick is written off as a major liability to the family’s public image. Frederick is left behind while the rest of his family flies to England to attend the royal wedding, only to die en route in a horrific plane crash. This leaves Frederick as the sole heir to the family fortune.

Frederick’s psyche is left shattered and he soon adopts a new persona to cope with life. The new Frederick is a deeply disturbed messiah figure who views all adults as being evil, corrupted by the institutions of modern life. Frederick dreams of a final revolution in which the children of the world rise up to seize power. Frederick uses his company to wage a covert war on the United States government. He does so by arming children with improvised weaponry (made by a colony of child laborer slaves on an island succinctly described as Saipan meets Disney World), cleverly disguised as the latest toy phenomenon. Frederick effectively arms and trains his sleeper cell army with funding from the enemy, Parents. Kids are organized into local chapters, similar to “The Goonies” style terrorist cells, with members often attending “space camp” style training centers during summer vacations. All hell breaks lose.
