Sans emploi depuis un an, Constance revient dans sa ville natale quand elle apprend qu’un poste se libère dans l’agence immobilière où elle a démarré sa carrière, mais son ancien patron lui préfère une autre candidate plus jeune. Constance est alors prête à tout pour récupérer la place qu’elle estime être la sienne.

At age 40, Constance is fired from her job as a real estate agent. She faces severe financial concerns. She can’t afford to rent her flat and she can’t find another job in Paris. With no other option, she decides to call her former boss, from the small agency in La Rochelle where she started her career. To her surprise, he is actually hiring. When he explains that he already found someone, Constance remains convinced she will get the job because of her experience and extensive qualifications. But she doesn’t. Instead, Audrey, a younger and prettier woman is hired by the company. This turn of events is too much for Constance to take… Watch as she pushes the limits in Irréprochable.
