Against the backdrop of impending war, an enterprising pimp and his seven working girls arrive in Borntown, northern Quebec, in the Christmas season of 1938. The entrepreneurs give a lavish reception right in the mine, which is the reason for the town's existence (and their presence). Afterwards, the usual difficulties of starting a new business come to the fore, with the additional difficulty of hell-and-brimstone sermons from the local priest (Jacques Dufilho). This film is in French.
