"May Day"

BY Olivier Magis et Fedrik De Beul

Dans le salon de Thierry, plusieurs personnes qui ne se connaissent pas sont venues nourrir le même rêve : trouver un travail, et vite. Mais comme nous sommes à Bruxelles, rien ne se passe comme prévu.

In Thierry’s living room, several people have gathered. None of them know each other but they are all there to try and fulfil the same dream. They want to find a job…and quickly. But we’re in Brussels, so nothing goes quite as planned.
