Because of their unattractive physique, Mireille, Astrid and Hakima have won the “blood sausage contest” at their school in Bourg-en-Bresse. The three then discover that their destinies intertwine in a specific date and place: Paris, the Elysée Palace, July 14. The summer of the “three Boudins” is thus all mapped out: destination the famous garden party of the Élysée!

And as long as they’re going to Paris, they might as well do it by bike—as street vendors of blood sausage, that is! What they didn’t expect was that their journey would attract media attention... until they became famous! Between difficulties, arguments, laughter and questioning, the three girls travel the roads of France, devour its cheeses, invite themselves in its castles and balls along their odyssey. Alive, really.
