Bruno Davert(José Garcia) is a chemist who was happily employed at a paper factory for fifteen years.  But when the company outsourced its production to Romania, Bruno was left jobless.  He scoured newspaper ads and sent out hundreds of resumes over the course of two years, though any hope of employment seemed nil.

On the brink of bankruptcy, a promising job opening appears that lifts Davert's spirits.  Unfortunately, the pool of applicants could be quite large.  To increase his chances of being hired, Bruno methodically guesses who the applicants might be -- and murders them one by one.
