“No really, I won’t do it in the room of the kid.” Four women tackle each other and then decide together to come to an end of their troubles. Four women in crisis and in a happy disaster. Pierre Note composed and wrote this comedy which is sung from the beginning to the end. Everything is falling apart and into ashes in this story. The apartment is partly burnt, Macha is a prostitute in order to provide a better life for her little sister. Their neighbour set her flat into fire. Walls are down and the three women have to live together when a fourth woman irrupts full of wrath. She is the wife of the stallholder who wants to liquidate Macha who took her husband away. After fighting each other, the four women unite themselves and their voices. After going through catastrophe and facing it, they escape in songs.
