I Really Hate My Job sizzles its way through one steamy night and the lives of five feisty women, working in a London restaurant with delusions of grandeur.
It is a summer evening in London. Alice, a 30ish aspiring writer, is running late for her job as a kitchen hand in a Soho café, the Stella Bar. Once she arrives, Alice discovers that the chef is drunk and incapable of working, and so, for a bonus, she agrees to be chef for the evening.
The action of the film takes place over this one evening as Alice's story intertwines with that of the waitresses - aspiring 30 year-old actor, Abi; 24 year old art student, Suzie - plus the 28 year old Maitre D', Madonna; and 48 year old dishwasher, Rita.
Over the course of the evening, chaos gradually ensues thanks to rat infestations, arguments about music, art, love and desire, the arrival of a Hollywood movie star, Danny Huston, and burnt food.
In the meantime, we learn about the loves, loathings and aspirations of this group of women - who also learn surprising things about each other and themselves as the evening progresses.
