Haunted by images of the factory in which he worked for thirty years, Marc Coton meets his former colleagues to find an answer to a question left open by the sudden closure of this industrial flagship: «Now that the plant has closed, what have we become?». As a result of this introspective journey, Marc, who is now unemployed, is confronted as much with his past as with an inventory of the labor world in a once industrial city.


Maxime Coton –– (La Louvière, Belgium, 1986) studied sound engineering at INSAS. Today, he is not only a sound engineer or a sound editor, but has also his own projects as a film director. He is involved as a poet, as a musician, and in the organization of a publishing house and audiovisual productions.
