In the era of superhero supremacy, the attempts of a man to survive in the economic system can put down all the superheroes in the world. An anthropocentric drama similar to the Dardenne brothers' cinema, and a life performance by Vincent Lindon that was awarded at the Cannes Festival.

Synopsis

Thierry, an unemployed worker, is trying to make ends meet for him and his family in modern France, where the working class is degraded and employer practices are harsh. He struggles not to give up, but what he faces in the free market, either by participating in training seminars or trying to open up new avenues of work, is the relentless face of a capitalistic system that constantly annihilates workers.
