What has led French voters to support a far-right party? This film tracks the rise of the National Front led by the Le Pen family through the eyes of its voters.

Controversial politician Jean-Marie Le Pen established the National Front in 1972 as a nationalist party, which has always united various groups of radicals, xenophobes, and racists. The party did not become mainstream until it was taken over by his daughter, Marine Le Pen, in 2011. During the last presidential election, Le Pen received over 30% of the votes. This film tracks the course of the election through the eyes of 3 of the party’s supporters, whose testimony is supplemented by archive materials summarizing the party’s development.
