Synopsis:
 

The austerity policy organized for two years in Belgium by the Provisional Government pushed aside the French-speaking cultural world.

Since 2011, the National office of the Employment (ONEM) undertook a real hunting to the unemployed persons.

Among them, 250 artists lose their status and find themselves in the second period of compensation with allowances reduced to 430 euros a month.

They quote the ONEM in front of the court to dispute the interpretations different from the regulations of access to the unemployment for the artists. They win all their trial against the ONEM. The artists denounce the slaughter everywhere in Europe of cultural policies. Behind the paste and the glitter of the ceremony of Magritte hides from nibbled apple cores testifying of a general malaise of the profession, but especially of a big gap between the real-life realities.
