The Odd-Job Men


In order to get through his one-week probationary contract, a young Moroccan plumber has to deal with equally eccentric colleagues and customers. The Odd-Job Men tells the story of a week in the life of Moha, Valero and Pep—workers in a small plumbing and electricity company in the outskirts of Barcelona.
