Básculas Blanco, a company producing industrial scales in a provincial Spanish town, awaits an imminent visit from a committee who will decide whether the workplace merits a local Business Excellence award. Working against the clock, the company’s proprietor, Blanco (Javier Bardem), pulls out all the stops to address his company’s issues and make sure everything is perfect before the arrival of the committee. But when a disgruntled former employee begins a vengeful campaign against him and the personal lives of his current employees threaten to derail the important preparations, the charismatic and manipulative Blanco crosses ethical boundaries to protect his company — and his massive ego. Directed by Fernando León de Aranoa, this Goya Award–winning Spanish workplace comedy is a satire — and a warning — of the dangers of unchecked ambition.
