In Dieppe, a small port town on the Normandy coast, stands a cabaret where Diva Beluga and her queens put on drag shows. The place survives thanks to the energy, the perseverance and the unshakeable faith of its team. Behind the parties and the glitter, struggles and resistances rumble. Welcome to “The Bearded Siren”.
