As the French people are getting ready to go to the polls to elect their new president, presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy has shut himself away in his home. Though Sarkozy soon knows he has won the election, he is alone, gloomy and despondent. For hours he has been trying to reach his wife, Cécilia but to no avail. The last five years unfurl before our eyes, recounting Sarkozy’s unstoppable ascent, 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. On the day the diminutive Sarkozy conquered his ultimate ambition, his wife—who for twenty years had struggled to pull the man she loved from the shadow into the light—walked out on him for another man.
