    Lolita hates to smile. Kévin doesn’t know how to sell himself. Hamid doesn’t like bosses. They are twenty. They have no qualifications. They are looking for work. Over six months, the coaches of an employment consultancy firm are going to teach them the attitudes and language required to get a job in today’s market. Through this apprenticeship, the film reveals the absurdity of these new rules of the game.

    The drama twists and turns, revealing how these yet-to-be-fully-nurtured young psyches age and watching their lives and worldviews change. Generating edge-of-seat tension to the viewing experience, Bories and Chagnard have produced a winning piece.
