One day, Gégé is leading Fanfan on a tour of the ghetto when the later incurs the wrath of a feared Tonton Macoute boss. Taking flight, terrified Fanfan sees the situation as a blessing in disguise when he's granted sanctuary in the cathouse that's been the object of his obsession for months. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
