Corporate middle manager Charlie Badger harbours delusions as thin as the paper he procures for the conglomerate Energec.

Returning to Head Office for one last job interview before retirement, Charlie fondly reflects on his career and his close relationship with young colleague Francesca. In doing so, he unwittingly unveils a history of professional failure and #MeToo harassment; and as the interview approaches, promising a reunion with Francesca, Charlie’s prized corporate credo – perception is reality – begins to unravel…

Charting the decline of a man who is equal parts Mr Stevens from The Remains of the Day and Lolita‘s Humbert Humbert, Badger is a satirical take on flawed masculinity, self-deception, and corporate life.
