Emilie is an HR manager and the soulless, smiling embodiment of neo-liberal profit maximisation ideology. She gets rid of "unviable" employees by means of an ingenious combination of humiliation and untenable expectations which the staff cannot counter. This system works fine until one day one of the victims isn't satisfied with just cursing her out, but confronts Emilie with the consequences of her behaviour in the most radical fashion. Suddenly, the company's personnel policy is the subject of an investigation and Emilie herself becomes a corporate risk.
