It is 1992, when ARO, a state-owned factory that manufactures off-road vehicles becomes bankrupt, in Muscel, Romania. The French are interested in buying the factory out and turning it into a company that produces canned snails. The new factory will have jobs for only 300 people. George, the leader of a local trade union, is desperately looking for a solution that would save the factory. He has problems with his wife and mistress (personal assistant of the factory’s president), the latter of who falls in love with one of the French investors. Finally, Alex comes up with a mad idea...
