Summary

Charles Blanchot is a hard-working and ambitious senior executive, who has well integrated his firm’s motto « to think corporate ». Sensing he is gradually gaining power and building a good reputation amongst his peers, he decides to orchestrate a restructuring project. But he is far from suspecting the tragic consequences of his ambition: Charles Blanchot is replaced, turned upon and finally brushed under the carpet. Even his own wife will end up rejecting him. His professional life will impact all aspects of his existence and in most unexpected ways.

MASSACRE explores the uncanny similarities between terrorism and violence at work today. Although the means are visibly different, both lead to the same end: irrevocable, irreversible violence, and total annihilation.
