Choukri, also known as Chouchou, is a young transvestite from North America who doesn’t have any papers. He arrives in Paris and gets lodging from Father Leon, who is in charge of a parish in the suburbs of Paris. Father Leon finds him a job as a receptionist for a psychoanalyst named Nicole Milovavich.

Chouchou searches for his nephew, and finds that he is working at a cabaret under the name of Vanessa. The nephew gets Chouchou a job performing there as well, and Stanislas, a regular customer, falls for him. But their happiness is threatened by Inspector Gregoire, a former and very violent patient of Doctor Milovavich.
