Louise is a grumpy and reclusive worker in a factory for women workers in Picardie. One day, the leadership treacherously abandons the factory, and the women decide to put together their redundancy payments and finally do something radical – they hire a killer to avenge them. The broody Louise doesn’t believe in labor unions; she believes in a well-directed hit. She seeks out Michel, a hitman with a shady reputation, and together they set out on a revenge journey full of bizarre twists and false culprits, which will result in a final moment of satisfaction. As one twist follows another, a crazy farce (in the best sense of the word) with a slightly anarchist mood leads to a long-desired vendetta.
