One day the checkout assistants at Discount's, the local supermarket, learn that their jobs are being threatened by the installation of automatic cash registers. If this wasn't bad enough, they will have to compete to determine who can stay and who will be fired.
What to do? After a heated debate, Christine, who is always short of cash, Alfred, the oldest and most likely to be laid off, Emma, a single mother, and Momo, a young French Arab, agree to their co-worker Gilles' proposal: to steal goods from the supermarket and sell them at a lower price at a store of their own.
“With a vision of the modern workplace as an anti-human machine reminiscent of Hal in 2001: A Space Odyssey, Petit’s partly crowdfunded film marks an astonishing debut.” —Film International
