In the People’s Democratic Republic of Bubunne, it is the women who hold all the power. The men stay at home and must wear the veil. In a little village, 20-year-old Jacky is looking forward to the grand ball, where Colonelle, the daughter of the country’s ruler, will pick her future husband, the “Grand Couillon” (big schmuck). A zany inverted fairy story by a comic strip auteur turned director.
