After the factory she works in is shut down overnight without warning, a destitute, illiterate worker convinces her laid-off colleagues to pool their indemnities and hire a contract killer to dispose of the boss. Politically incorrect black comedy that pushes the boundaries most other black comedies never even get near in a low-budget, often improvisational style, even at the risk of being occasionally offensive or missing the targets; but, remarkably, it's never offhand or gratuitous, and there's a genuine style at work here.
