A suspenseful drama from creators and writers Eric Benzekri and Jean-Baptiste Delafon (Maison Close), and directed by Ziad Doueiri (L’Attentat).
In a tale of epic scale, French politician Philippe Rickwaert (Kad Merad) thirsts for revenge against his political enemies. Philippe’s political career is in shambles after he is sacrificed by the presidential candidate from the Left, Francis Laugier (Niels Arestrup), in order to save his election. Step by step, Philippe plots against him and forges an alliance with his closest advisor, Amélie Dorendeu (Anna Mouglalis).
As deceitful as he is sincere, Philippe cultivates friendships across social stratas, from the police to the criminal underworld. His life is a fascinating, organized chaos, as he is continuously up against his enemies and his own demons.
