), the screenplay focuses on Arnaud Jaurès, a 25-year-old who is new to the world of politics and who, thanks to a certain set of circumstances, ends up on the campaign team for a candidate running in the presidential election. Jaurès finds himself as an assistant to Agnès Karadzic, director of communications, a powerful and experienced woman who attracts and fascinates him. She introduces him to campaign tactics, and he watches drama and rivalry within the team unfold from the comfort of her side, gradually abandoning his naivety to climb the ladder towards a very strategic position.

Produced by Francis Boepsflug and Stéphane Parthenay for Pyramide Productions and by David Grumbach and Mathieu Robinet for Bac Films, Le Poulain benefits from advance financing from Canal + and Ciné +, as well as support from the Occitanie region and Sofica Indéfilms, Cofimages and Cinémages. Having commenced on 18 September, the six-week shoot will take place in Montpellier and Paris with Jérôme Alméras (nominated for a CST in 2013 for Quai d'Orsay and a David di Donatello 2014 for his specialism for Human Capital [+see also:
