In July 1997 the Moulinex centre at Mamers in the Sarthe closes down.
Nicole, Pascale, Josianne, Maurice and Dominique have been working in the factory for more than twenty
years. From one day to the next their lives change. They all find themselves confronted with situations they
have never dealt with before: unemployment, being reclassified and transfered. Their strength lies in their
innocence. They all five have certain standards on their new paths and they refuse to accept « There’s
nothing we can do ».
