A JOB LIKE ANY OTHER

Last June, Pierre passed away suddenly. The film is now intended as a tribute to his life and to the Drag Queen Aunt Gaby. Pierre is an ordinary 55-year-old man, lonely and very shy. He lives surrounded by his favourite collectible figurines in a quiet and tidy apartment. For 30 years, he has worked in a profession opposed to his introverted nature: Drag Queen-barmaid. A difficult, restrictive livelihood that he did not really choose. For him, it's a job like any other.
