Paul Théraneau, the mayor of Lyon, is in existential crisis. After 30 years in politics, he feels totally empty and devoid of ideas. As a fix for this problem, his aides bring a brilliant young philosopher, Alice Heimann, into his inner circle. A dialogue develops between Alice and the mayor and the two become closer, which calls into question everything they were most sure of.
Gradually, the inevitable question arises: are philosophy and political necessity compatible?
