Isabelle Adjani is Carole Matthieu – a workplace physician employed in a call center who has become emotionally involved in the suffering of her humiliated coworkers, exposed to both physical and emotional violence.
Powerless to stop the endless flow of employees that come to see her on a daily basis, she decides to take action one evening.
When one employee, whom she has previously saved from a suicide attempt, comes to see her, she decides to end it all…. for him. In a frantic race against time, police search for a culprit, unions dither on the stance they should take, and the management tries to keep up a front, to hold on to their market share.
Despite these obstacles, and the doubt and guilt consuming her, the slayer-cum-saviour workplace angel is determined to recount “the other story”, using notes, letters and medical records. The story of men and women, crushed under the mechanics of performance and profit.
With: Isabelle ADJANI, Corinne MASIERO, Ola RAPACE.
