After narrowly escaping an assassination attempt on election night, Idder Chaouch, France’s first president-elect of North African descent, must navigate both racial and family politics to secure a future for his loved ones and country.
In Paris, the home stretch of Idder Chaouch’s presidential campaign is met with a wave of hope and popular support. Meanwhile, Chaouch’s daughter and her fiancé, Fouad, attend a wedding where he must endure the presence of his brother Nazir.
After being shot, Idder Chaouch falls into a coma. Marion, his head of security, is cut off from the investigations. Racked with guilt, she tries to dig deeper. She gets closer to Fouad and convinces him to investigate his family.
Fouad returns to Saint-Etienne to reconnect with his family. Lost in a city he no longer recognises or understands, he tries in vain to get back in touch with his fiancée, Jasmine.
There’s a major change in Chaouch’s comatose condition. Marion goes to Saint-Etienne to find Fouad, while Nazir makes an escape.
To prevent riots from breaking out in Saint-Etienne, President Chaouch attends a soccer match in the city. Fouad tries to meet Jasmine there. Marion tries to reach the president’s security, convinced that another threat is coming.
