    • Synopsis
    • A factory somewhere in French Picardie.
      A few months after a downsizing, the female workers are on the alert, but received a company gift that puts everyone at rest. On the next morning, they discover that everything has been cleared off during the night and that the management is on the loose, accomplice of a swift outsourcing.
      Scandalized but realists, the female workers decide to pool their absurdly low compensation money in order to finance a redeployment project. Several ideas are considered, but nothing arouses their enthusiasm.
      Louise, the wildest of all, has a workable and affordable idea: to hire a professional hitman to kill the boss! Unanimous agreement! Louise is in charge of finding the htiman and she is about to choose the most pathetic killer of his generation: Michel. Together, they will hunt down the rogue boss.
      A half anarchist, half burlesque adventure that will conclude with a nice baby, though not at all as they are usually supposed to be...
