A failing French small-business struggles to survive while the cameras roll in this highly acclaimed French documentary that has won several prizes at international film festivals. Navigation Systems is a small company that sells pre-packaged salad and meat products. Like many such businesses the world over, it must fight to stay afloat in the face of creditors, the bank and ever-rising taxes. Filmmaker Claire Simon records with respect and a touch of ironic humor the company's losing battle while celebrating the spirit, solidarity and valor of the few remaining employees who remain to the bitter end.
