Synopsis

Grisélidis Réal is like a meteor. She started off in Munich's red-light district picking up black GI's. She did time in prison. In the 70s, she became a 'revolutionary whore'. She writes : ... 'Prostitution is an art, a science, and a humanistic practice,' but she also describes its cruel and hard reality as uncompromising. Grisélidis paints, draws, and writes her life as she lives each moment. Grisélidis is rebellion. She goes through the night screaming, dressed up, done up, sublime. This film traces the journey of an extraordinary woman, weaving the fragmented and multiple portraits of a magnificent rebel behind which lies a real writer.
