Despite heavy financial sacrifices from its employees, and record profits, the German owners of Perrin Industries in the South of France, decide to close down the factory – the only employer in the region. Led by union representative Laurent Amedeo, the 1,100 employees go on strike and embark on a fight to save their livelihoods. Director Stéphane Brizé teams up again with Vincent Lindon for this rousing slice of socio-realist cinema.

“Ripped from the headlines, keenly researched and carefully crafted, this fictional tale has near-universal resonance.” - Screen International
