Sandra has been pushed out of her job working for a small solar panel company following a vote in which fellow employees were given a choice between her redundancy or their 1,000 euro bonuses. Recently recovered from a bout of depression that kept her off work, Sandra's impulse is to crawl back into bed with a Xanax. But her loving husband, Manu urges her to fight to keep her job.
Initially, Sandra is too defeated to speak up for herself, but her colleague and friend Juliette catches the firm's manager on Friday afternoon, persuading him to revisit the issue in a silent ballot on Monday morning. With 14 out of her 16 co-workers having voted against her, that leaves Sandra two days to track down their addresses, visit them at their homes and persuade at least seven more to forgo their bonuses and vote in her favour, securing the majority she needs in order to remain employed.
