Norman (Gere) just wants to matter. He is a liar, manipulator, fixer, opportunist and a nobody, convinced he’s just one deal away from being somebody.

When Micha becomes Prime Minister, Norman suddenly finds himself using his small-time skills to fix complex problems with big-time implications.
“A spellbinder that features Richard Gere in one of his best performances ever” Rolling Stone
