The French President has just been assassinated. Behind the scenes of a tense campaign to elect a new leader begins a war between two communication strategists, both eager to claim the President’s legacy. Games of power, treason, hate, love: these spin doctors will stop at nothing to take their candidate to the top.

Followed by a Q&A with actor Grégory Fitoussi, chaired by Gabriel Tate, TV editor of Time Out.
