(A French language film with English subtitles)

The day is May 6th, 2007, France's run-up to the presidential elections. As the French people are getting ready to go to the polls to elect their new president, candidate Nicolas Sarkozy has shut himself away in his home. Though Sarkozy soon learns he has won the election, he is alone, gloomy and despondent. For hours he has been trying to reach his wife, Cécilia, to no avail. The last five years start to unfurl before our eyes, recounting Sarkozy's unstoppable ascent to power, riddled with in-party backstabbing, media manipulation, riots, sarcastic confrontations and extra-marital affairs. 'The Conquest' chronicles the volatile right-leaning Sarkozy's startling rise to become President of France and the emotional and psychological stakes involved in the conquest of power.
