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.

OUR TAKE Brilliantly written and supported by a cast of delightful characters, Parliament is an candid chronicle of the European political anthill, peppered with by Noé Debré’s sharp wit. With their fragile alliances, shameless manipulation, and shocking shenanigans, who knew parliamentary assistants in Brussels had such panache?
