From the Oscar-winning director Jean-Xavier De Lestrade, producer of Netflix series THE STAIRCASE, comes this tense thriller about power, politics, and the dominance of big businesses who put profits before people. When farmers suspect the presence of harmful products in grain supplied by global agrochemical giant Saskia, journalist Claire Lancel has no hesitation in investigating the story. Her research not only finds widespread toxicity but also uncovers a health scandal surrounding a huge dairy cooperative whose infant milk contains high levels of pesticides.

Supported by a passionate young ecological activist and an adviser to the new Minister of Agriculture, Claire thinks she has enough support and prepares to make her findings public. However, she hadn’t counted on the dubious tactics of powerful lobbyist Matthieu Bowman – and his even more powerful corporate paymasters – who’ll stop at nothing to get the results they want.

Can Bowman thwart the Minister’s pro-environment plans, and manage to keep Claire’s discoveries hidden?

Digging into a story proves a dangerous game.
