A mysterious phone call turns the life of data scientist Maryam Çetin upside down. On the other end of the line: Wolfgang Adrian, the richest man in Europe. A few minutes later, Maryam is already in a taxi to the airport – leaving her work and her family behind indefinitely. In Maastricht, Adrian gathers a bizarre 6-member task force around him to fulfil his life’s dream: The salvation of Europe. The task for the continent is to once again become the driving force of liberality and social progress. The group members have to combine their diverse strengths to change the political climate – and simply create the appropriate news themselves. Because: “Whoever makes the headlines today will make the elections tomorrow.” In the process, they not only increasingly lose their moral compass, but also the overview of their activities. The events in Europe are coming thick and fast – a chain reaction over which the task force no longer seems to have any control.
