資訊是目前最有價值的貨幣。總統選舉兩個月前,成功且具有影響力的廣告公司老闆亞當朗貝接到了一個新任務,為一個特別的候選人:無名小鎮的企業家,競選造勢,目的只是為了在政治圈引起騷動並且搶下對手黨派的幾張選票。朗貝總是能夠不費吹灰之力的操弄群眾並且達到目的。然而,在一場晚宴上,他的的競爭對手,也是為勝率最高的候選人工作的穆勒伊凡,對朗貝下了戰帖。賭注大約七百萬歐元,朗貝將所有的財產梭哈在一個不知名的候選人上,發誓會讓他當選為總統,並且在第一輪選舉就達成目標。《競選風暴》描繪政治圈的情景,是對於社會被金錢與權力操弄的諷刺分析。懂得操弄權力的人,就能創造模糊了真實與幻象、邪惡與善良不分的世界。

The Candidate is a cynical black humored thriller situated in Slovakia during a presidential campaign. Created on the basis of a novel written by Maros Hecko and Michal Havran it follows a manipulatory game of producing president of a country out of Mr Nobody. The campaign and a dangerous game is perceived through eyes of two snoops, who are hired to tap and record Adam Lambert, a conjurer of local advertising world. The Candidate is a witty political farce, indirectly depicting wide malignancies of a post-communist society instantly transformed into money-ruled, rightist one.
