Samy, a young parliamentary assistant arrives in Brussels a few weeks after the Brexit referendum. He is obviously not fit for the job. In fact, Samy doesn’t know much about European institutions and he hopes to get away with it thanks to his wit and cleverness.

He gets quickly assigned an obscure mission: write a report on finning (the act of removing fins from sharks and discarding the rest of the animal).

But how do you get a report adopted at the European Parliament? Samy has no clue and he has six months to master the secrets of the institution.
