Lydia works on the fringes of the real estate industry. Her role is to bribe and cheat as much as necessary so that the company she works for can continue to operate a dangerous construction site, on which one day a luxury residential project will be built. Her responsibility includes employing illegal workers from the fringes of society, who are required to serve the company goals without anyone to protect them, except that the dismissal of one foreman, and the entry into office of a new and subversive manager, lead to a rebellion.

The workers embark on a fierce struggle against the company and for their rights and safety. Soon, the tension between the company and its workers escalates – and leads to disaster. Finally, Lydia will be forced to face a difficult dilemma and will be required to pick a side.
