In the fictional Flemish commune Ransegem, Gaston Van Opstal is the mayor for 17 years. He controls his commune like a perfect citizen father. But then, fate strikes. There's a wake-up call in Ransgemen, six months before the elections. The citizens are being dragged into a political life. They have to make choices between their career or family, between their private interests or commune interests. Because what happens if ambitions become larger than their senses?
Els Laene plays Mieke Van Abeele. She's the daughter of Carine and René. She's the favorite of her grand-father Gaston. Mieke had Down Syndrome.
