Slaughterhouse workers talk about their work. Their testimonies reveal how this “world apart”, at the very limits of the human condition, affects the health of workers.
The film relate the daily battle men and women who work in slaughterhouses have to fight against their own emotions to “hold on”.
Through the course of their stories, the mental images that inhabit them are gradually revealed, and in places, one can guess all those they prefer not to deliver. Shot in the forest, a symbolic space of refugeand isolation, the documentary does not show any image captured in a slaughterhouse.
