Episodes 1 and 2

A minister of agriculture caught in the trap of exercising power; a lobbyist ready to do anything to hush up a health scandal; mothers helpless in the face of the drama that affects them; a journalist determined to discover the truth...

A strikingly topical story, a confrontation between politicians, lobbies, media and activists, by Oscar-winning director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade.

Note from the artistic direction
Jean-Xavier de Lestrade proves once again that he is one of the greatest portraitists of modern society and all its failings. After Laëtitia, the creator is back with Jeux d’influence, les combattantes and an anthology season about the relationship between lobby groups and the food-processing industry. A series of chilling realism!
