A high-profile political docu-thriller unveiling the EU’s untold story.

In the early 1990s, two young men discover the enormous influence of lobbying in Brussels. Olivier Hoedeman becomes the EU’s leading lobby-watchdog. Pascal Kerneis becomes a high profile lobbyist for multinational industries. With Olivier’s investigations and Pascal’s career the film takes us on a journey into the corridors of power of the biggest economy on earth – the European Union. Lobby groups, consultancies, think tanks and law firms teaming up with the EU’s political elite are the secretive networks that steer the life of 500 million Europeans.
