    • In a small town in France, Léa, a young woman, goes to university, takes care of her incapacitated grand mother and works at night as barmaid to make ends meet. But Lea dreams of another life: she wants to move to Paris to study at the prestigious School of Political Science. Her success at the entrance exam rushes all her decisions. She has to leave her grandmother behind. When Léa finally finds a decent old people’s home for the elderly woman, she is faced with a dilemma: it is very expensive and she doesn’t have the means to pay for it. So Léa decides to become a stripper.
