Through hard work, Emmanuelle Blachey, a brilliant and voluntary engineer, won her place on the executive committee of Trident, the French energy giant. Married for twenty years to a caring man and mother of two children, his success is total ... or almost. One day, a network of women of influence proposes to help him to conquer the head of a company of the CAC40. But to have a chance to be first, you have to risk everything! In spheres still largely dominated by men, the obstacles in his professional and intimate life multiply.
