Queen of lost causes, in charge of finding a closure deal for a factory in the Vosges, work inspector Rita knows that she will be able to save a few employees over a hundred of dismissed workers. However, on her way home at night, the lights of her old car illuminate a half naked young girl, running in the dark… Because factories are full of dangerous men, who have nothing left to loose. Like the trade unionist Martel who hides his tattoos, or the bodybuilder under steroids Bruce.
These guys had the wrong idea when they decided to kidnap a young hooker on Strasbourg’s pavement, to sell her to local big shots who run the show between Epinal and Nancy.
« War on Beast » is about a woman, fighting for these downgraded men, trapped in this slowly dying world…
