Synopsis

“Increasingly captivating as pressure mounts.” –THR

A factory strike in the South of France becomes the stage for a gripping power play between a boisterous union leader and his duplicitous employers. Rabble-rouser Laurent (Vincent Lindon) is determined to hold the bosses to account over a pending plant closure, but rising tensions quickly spin out of control. News reel footage coupled with dazzling handheld camerawork creates a powerful immediacy—the workers’ fight is our own.
