Paulette feels guilty after unjustly punishing her daughter Linda and would do anything to make it up to her. Linda immediately asks for a meal of chicken with peppers, which reminds her of her father. But with a general strike closing stores all across town, this innocent request quickly leads to an outrageous series of events that spirals out of control, as Paulette does everything she can to keep her promise! This very French animated feature is a unique visual marvel of hand-painted animation with bright, color-blocked characters and a story that is an intoxicating blend of slapstick comedy, musical, and family drama.

Underwriting for the Film Department is provided by Tenaris, The June Leaf and Robert Frank Foundation, and the Vaughn Foundation.

Generous funding is provided by The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea; Nina and Michael Zilkha; Lois Chiles; Foundation for Independent Media Arts; Franci Neely; Carrin Patman and Jim Derrick; Ms. Laurence Unger; L'Alliance Française de Houston; and ILEX Foundation.
