„“The golden age of plump burlesque.”

A nostalgic tragicomedy about the American cabaret group New Burlesque on tour in France, where romantic notions clash with reality. The once successful Parisian producer Joachim left his entire life behind to start over in America. Now, he has returned to France with a burlesque show featuring not quite the youngest or slimmest dancers, whose heads Joachim fills with fantasies of a grand tour. But while the troupe makes little money and must stay in cheap motels, the plump showgirls’ enthusiasm is a hit with the public. The dream of capping the tour in Paris runs up against Joachim’s past full of unhealed wounds.
