A straight man falls in love with a drag queen, in this crowd-pleasing French dramedy that questions the rigid confines of gender presentation and sexual labels.
Handsome photographer Baptiste visits his long-term girlfriend’s work at a late night sexual health clinic. There he meets Cookie Kunty, a drag queen, and he’s instantly transfixed by her beauty and poise. As they spend more time together taking photographs his attraction only intensifies, even as he gets to know the man behind the queen. But is he ready to be a part of this newfound world of foundation, frocks and found family, or is he just a passing tourist?
