A young farmer is facing the prospect of losing his farm through bankruptcy. He watches a cabaret show in the local town and comes up with an idea to stage his own cabaret show with the aid of an out-of-work exotic dancer.

Sometimes hard work and big ideas aren’t enough. David’s dairy farm is on the brink of liquidation. When he chances  upon a dazzling nightclub performance by Bonnie Starlight, inspiration strikes.

What if he turned his big old barn into a country cabaret? Not just for entertainment, but to promote local food producers, including his mother’s delicious cheese. A crazy plan, for sure - which is exactly why he loves it! Everything seems on track for the big opening night, until David’s traditionalist grandpa steps in, hell-bent on putting an end to their follies. Can they save the show and save the farm? Based on a fabulous true story.

FR | 2022 | Comedy/Drama | 109 min | Dir. Jean-Pierre Améris | In French with English subtitles
