With the Socialist Party in shambles, Philippe joins Michel Vidal’s "The People Stand Up.” As the regional election approaches, Philippe sees it as a golden opportunity to pull some strings, but Vidal is not fooled by his double game.
During a trip to Spain, Vidal tries to secure Philippe’s loyalty and make him renounce his Elysian ambitions. As revelations about Amélie’s personal life thwarts her plans, she announces a surprise referendum that shakes Philippe’s alliance.
Amélie surprises everyone by announcing a referendum to modernize the institutions of the Fifth Republic, which divides Vidal and Philippe. When Vidal is forced to accept Philippe’s vote, he challenges him to an oral debate.
Voting yes to Amélie’s referendum becomes a debacle and threatens to bury Philippe’s political ambitions. But when a pro-abstention supporter blurs the campaign, Philippe starts believing again, even if it means playing with fire.
