Samy, a young parliamentary assistant, arrives in Brussels a few weeks after the Brexit referendum. He doesn’t know much about European institutions but hopes to get away with it thanks to his wit and cleverness. Tough luck! He gets assigned to take care of an amendment for the Committee on Fisheries. Samy has six months to get it adopted at the European Parliament.
