CGiii Comment

Criss-cross stories adapted by author Michel Tremblay's popular plays from the Plateau borough in Montreal: a young teenager gets pregnant accidentally and must find a way to get a secret abortion, a drag-queen goes to a gala night at a gay club unaware that he will be humiliated for some cons he played on the homosexual community, and a gullible house lady invites her neighbors to help her glue trading stamps, but they have plans to rob and humiliate the poor woman and her household.
