As the new mayor of Montfermeil—an underprivileged commune on the outskirts of Paris—Emmanuelle Joly has great expectations. However, two of her staffers, Joëlle and Kamel, have just culminated their long separation with a finalized divorce. As the mayor starts implementing her quirky campaign promises—naps for all, rooftop farms, sexual assistance in the home, harmonization of breathing—political rivals start sabotaging her enthusiastic plans, while Joëlle and Kamel’s bickering further disrupt the administration and threaten this year’s Brioche Day.
