The documentary portraits the struggle for survival of ITAS, the only factory in Croatia which was taken over and defended by its workers during postwar privatization. Today the workers are trying to find a model of joint ownership. The author follows them day to day, vivisecting the concept of workers self-management in the time of market economy and giving a close look of industry on the EU periphery. Interpersonal relations, formal and informal hierarchies, decision making processes and workers’ (self)critique form a complex narrative structure which shows the conditions of collective action.
