Documentary on the drafting of the first European constitution following the process of decision making by the decision makers and the consequences for the new soon to be enlarged Europe.

The forum to enable this process was the 'Convention', the controlling body of the Convention the Preasidium. The stories of the five members of the Preasidium, and the public and behind the scenes dealings of the nations as they joust for the best terms, unfolds, against the visions for a united and integrated Europe that has recently expanded to 25 countries, unique footage and access allowed us to make one of the most intriguing and informative accounts of the forming of the new European Constitution.
