While volunteering at a public-health clinic alongside his girlfriend, 29-years-old Baptiste first meets Cookie Kunty, a young drag queen from the Parisian scene, who immediately mesmerizes him and leads him on a profound journey of self-discovery. Initially motivated by the idea of a photography project revolving around Cookie, he immerses himself into this world, eventually embarking upon a relationship with Quentin, the young man behind the drag queen. The director, himself a drag performer, takes Baptiste and viewers on a deep dive into the world of drag performance and culture, depicted with loving, joyous accuracy thanks to the contributions of 40 French drag artists at work in front of and behind the camera.
