Joachim, a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind
- his children, friends, enemies, lovers and regrets - to start a new life
in America. He comes back with a team of New Burlesque strip-tease
performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris!
Traveling from port to port, the curvaceous showgirls invent an extravagant
fantasy world of warmth and hedonism, despite the constant round of
impersonal hotels with their endless elevator music and the lack of money.
The show gets an enthusiastic response from men and women alike.
But their dream of a tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes
up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the
theatre where they were due to perform. A quick return journey to the
capital violently reopens old wounds...
