Synopsis
After a long separation, Joëlle and Kamel finally divorce, but both are on the staff of Emmanuelle Joly, the newly elected mayor of Montfermeil, an underprivileged town on the outskirts of Paris. The mayor's team gets to work implementing the wonders she promised on the campaign trail: naps for all; crops on rooftops; sexual assistance in the home; harmonization of humans' breathing; Montfermeil International School of Languages, and so on. But dangerous enemies resolutely sabotage these fine policies as Paris plans its expansion, and Madam Mayor slowly slips into depression. Will we have a wonderful Brioche Day this year?

« Decidedly original in tone and underpinned by an extremely precise writing style. »
