Synopsis:
Jan, the most popular cop in Flanders, quits the drugs squad to devote his time to a populist, nationalist party. His hardnosed reputation and tough talking make him a serious candidate for election. He is the heaven-sent man that a whole nation has been waiting for. On his final raid on an illegal drug lab in Charleroi, with Dries, a young Belgian policeman from a Maghreb background, for whom he acts as a mentor, Jan discovers that one of the dealers is his son, a drug addict and a Walloon. This would compromise his election prospects, so Jan decides to kidnap him. With the polls putting him in the lead and the campaign underway, the vice starts to tighten around Jan, who has to hide this son and eliminate any trace of his existence which reveals his shady involvement…
