Even though ‘At War’ is a kind of movie that we have really seen before which involves employees fighting against their paymasters, the plot of the movie helps us realise that the situation is no different even outside India when it comes to conflict between management of the company and lower level employees.
Despite record profits and heavy sacrifices made by their employees, the management of Perrin Industries decides to shut down a factory. The 1,100 employees decide to battle against the brutal decision in an attempt to save their jobs. Eric Laurent (Vincent Lindon) decides to take the lead in a fight against this decision.
