Il film racconta la storia di Marta, giovane e brillante neolaureata in filosofia col massimo dei voti. Dopo la laurea, Marta vorrebbe continuare a fare ricerca in università o lavorare in una casa editrice; ma, non avendo le “conoscenze” giuste, tutte le porte sembrano chiuse per lei. Per potersi mantenere, in attesa di un’opportunità migliore, Marta accetta di andare a lavorare in un Call Centre, e qui i sogni di Marta si scontrano con la cruda realtà dell’ambiente lavorativo. Ispirato ad una storia vera, è un film tragicomico che affronta il tema più che mai attuale del precariato giovanile.
