A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.
Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don’t stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France. They glug red wine and hope to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a non-believer who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting.
They’ll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms.
