Synopsis
Chaos ensues when a gay man attempts to pose as straight for the benefit of his son's future in-laws. Renato owns a popular nightclub and his long-time lover Zaza, is a female impersonator and the club's star attraction. Unfortunately, Renato's son, Laurent has not told his future father-in-law, an important figure in a conservative political organization about his unconventional family. But Renato finds his familiar habits, and those of the even more flamboyant Zaza, getting in the way of their charade. Zaza then comes up with what he thinks is an ideal solution: he'll dress in drag and pose as Renato's wife.
