Synopsis:

The wealthy Congolese businessman, Moïse Katumbi, is not only governor of the African province of Katanga, rich in precious minerals, but is also president of the famous football team «Le Tout puissant Mazembe».

The media, football, politics and business are the ingredients of the cocktail concocted by this new African messiah named Moïse. He is the symbol of this new leadership that gains power through ballot boxes and elections, as well as being a symbol of a democracy based on business and populism. A rival of the president of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Joseph Kabila, will Moïse one day be elected president?
