Unterwerfung is available in: German [Original] on Netflix Germany
François is a literary scholar and drinker. His relationships with women are limited to one year, his life is sufficiently happy. Until the day when charismatic Muslim politician Mohamed Ben Abbes becomes president in France, introduces patriarchy and polygamy and loses his job. In his growing loneliness, Rector Rediger's offer to resume his teaching at the Sorbonne reaches him on one condition: he must convert to Islam.
When France elects its first Muslim president, the shifting cultural climate drastically changes a literary scholar's life.
