Documentary offering a behind the scenes view on the Brexit negotiations. We follow Guy Verhofstadt, lead negotiator of the European Parliament,
for a period of almost two years. A film about the state of our democracy, about how politics are done in times of social media and populism. And will the
European project find a new momentum in the midst of all this?
