Plot – Willie Stark is a modest man full of wit who devotes himself to politics. Some colleagues support him but actually they think to take advantage of him. When Willie discovers the machinations, he reports them and wins the elections. As governor of the state, he has a great program of public works to realize, so he turns to the same corrupted systems of his opponents. Stark’s personality thus transforms completely as he becomes a dictator with no scruples. His family and friends have now to bend to his will too: Willie betrays his wife, distances his best friend from his girlfriend, ruins his adopted son and pushes a judge to commit suicide. Everyone abandons him, only the crowd is still faithful to the governor but his success won't last forever.
