This Canadian comedy-drama from Quebec centers upon the mid-life crisis of one middle-class man who falls in love with a stripper and abandons his family. He is Real, a high-school teacher with the regulation attractive wife, two cute kids, and a lovely home in the suburbs. He leads a dull, predictable life until he and his buddies head to the local strip joint and see the luscious Angie singing a gutsy rock & roll tune and doing her act in a see-through body suit,. Intrigued, he decides to hang around and have a drink with her. He then takes her to her apartment and they end up engaged in fast and furious illicit behavior. Unable to contain his little secret, he blurts out details of the affair to his librarian wife at her work-place. She does not take it gracefully and a terrible row ensues. Milque-toast Real's involvement with Angie brings him into a seamy world filled with drugs, crime and gangsters. Eventually, he becomes the emcee for Angie's club and more mayhem ensues.
