A delicious political comedy – panic at the Ministry of Education! The Education Minister wants to enforce mandatory school uniforms and the students are revolting. Meanwhile, the Minister’s trusted chief of staff Gabrielle, a dynamic career woman, is contending with a troublesome daughter who wants her independence but has no means of income and an impossible hippy mother who sets Gaby up with dates. Gaby concentrates all her energy on her job and to save her boss from every sticky political and scandal-plagued situation. Don’t miss this clever piece, exquisitely timed for Macron’s Gilets Jaunes France!
