What does a lifetime of service get you? That's what Inès (Jasmina Douieb) wants to find out. As the long-time office manager for EcoCleanPro Cleaning Supplies, she's the only woman on staff in this very sexist office. She does whatever it takes to keep things running – even if it means replacing toilet paper her male coworkers can't seem to do themselves. After the regional manager's visit reveals abysmal numbers in gender pay equity at EcoCleanPro, Inès wants her dedication to pay off with a raise. Unfortunately, her request is rejected by her incompetent boss Patrick (Peter Van den Begin) and, fueled by the unfairness and under the watchful eye of Melody (Laetitia Mampaka), the new intern, Inès redoubles her efforts for compensation. When her history with Patrick rears its ugly head and leads to an accident, all hell breaks loose, and the two women must combine troubleshooting skills for possibly the biggest mess of their lives.
Véronique Jadin covers it all in her darkly comedic look at sexism in office culture and gender inequality. From the absurd to the heartbreaking, the cast pulls out all the stops with insane scenarios and nail-biting moments. For her debut feature film, Jadin scored veteran Belgian actor Van den Begin, French comedic star Alex Vizorek, and the chemistry between Douieb and Mampaka can't be beaten. It's a romp audiences won't forget, and you'll be cheering these women on as they bumble through the ridiculous, the gory and too many strokes of luck to count. – Carolyn Mauricette
