A group of underemployed women, with a background of domestic abuse, decides to open a construction company. At first it is just part-time restructuring jobs, and they are generally looked at with scepticism, but then, little by little, this company becomes successful, getting its partners/friends closer and closer, healing the wounds of their souls and helping them take their lives back in their hands. Who said being a constructor worker is not “a woman’s business”?
