Synopsis

Clémence, the fearless mayor of a town near Paris, is completing the final term of her political career. With her faithful right-hand man Yazid, she has long fought for this town plagued by poverty, unemployment and slumlords. However, when Clémence is approached to become Minister, her ambition arises, questioning her devotion and commitment to her citizens. Will her political integrity and election promises survive her newly found ambition?

Director’s Statement

A few years ago, after a French election, I began thinking about this story. I wanted to make a film questioning the possibility of political courage. Fortunately, once Jean-Baptiste Delafon and I started writing, something more nuanced and less theoretical quickly started to emerge… Promises are the currency of politics. Whether materialised by a position, a subsidy, an alliance… promises are what the protagonists trade throughout the film.
