Inès is the mainstay of EcocleanPro, a small wholesale company selling household products. She gives herself body and soul to her boss PATRICK, in the love of a job well done. Although PATRICK is proud of his 1992 Manager of the Year award, the laziness of his employees JEAN-PAUL and JEAN-PIERRE play shoulder to shoulder with the boastfulness of NICO, the tiresome salesman.

Under the blasé gaze of the new trainee MELODY, the marketing phrases of the Benelux manager ANNA NILSSON open up a new mental space for Inès: she is the only one who never gets a raise, even though she works harder than the others. Is it because she is the only woman in this boys' club?
Ines takes her courage in both hands and for the first time insists on being augmented, but Patrick throws her out in two sentences. Ines gets screwed again; her frustration turns to anger. Ingesting Xanax and Viagra won't help. Ines wants her raise and all of EcoClean is going to pay cash for these years of exploitation.
Mélody's internship will finally prove to be very instructive...

After a Master's degree in Romance Languages and Literature, Véronique worked on feature films and TV movies, mainly as an assistant director (Doillon, Hanchar, Fonteyne, Smolders, Knauff, Molinaro, Gianoli...) but also in production and post-production. She also writes. Her first short film, En fanfare, starring Tsilla Chelton (Auntie Danièle), aged nearly 90, made the rounds of festivals and won several awards. Seduced by the old actress, she began to film her, at work or at home. Two short films followed: Comme des héros, adapted from a short story by Thomas Gunzig, and Ingrid fait son cinéma. A documentary, On est loin d'avoir fini! (2015), is a humorous account of her adventure with Tsilla Chelton, a touching and tyrannical woman who died before the end of the film. Les Moches, a comedy co-written with Anne Fournier is in development - with the support of the CSF (writing support) and RTBF development support, and the support of Grandes Régions (Luxembourg). Atelier Grand Nord 2017. White Rabbit, another LM (Velvet Films) project, has been selected for Boostcamp 2018, in partnership with Groupe Ouest. Read less
