Film Description: 

In China like everywhere, a woman’s place in society is linked to politics and tradition. But China’s politics and tradition make a unique setting on earth.

It’s within this context that Lulu emerges.

Back in 2009, she was a pioneer of Burlesque, in a country where strip tease can lead to jail and young girls run after marriage. We follow this extraordinary character for over ten years, in an ever evolving China.
