The 29-year-old Baptiste (Pablo Pauly) works in a Fnac department store, but his real passion lies in photography. He has been in a relationship with Samia (Hafsia Herzi) for eight years and one night, when she is on duty at a mobile station of her hospital, he takes some photographs for her work. In the process, he meets two flamboyant drag queens. When one of them, Cookie Kunty (Romain Eck), proposes that he make Cookie and her entourage the subjects of a photo project, Baptiste becomes immersed in a previously unknown universe—where he discovers Quentin, the young man beneath the outrageous costumes and make-up… ‘\"Everyone is welcome in the realm of drag queens\". Conveying to perfection the vibrancy of this incredibly intense (the baroque and joyful magic of their shows, the nightclubs) yet wistfully painful (the return to everyday life, society’s occasionally hostile gaze, etc.) world, Florent Gouëlou examines a complex relationship with the world (\"at once Scarlett Johansson and Voldemort\", \"the most beautiful girl and the kindest boy\"), which is nonetheless bursting with life.’—Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa.
