During the Belle Epoque in Montmartre Henri Danglard runs a cabaret where Parisians come to admire the belly dancer Lola de Castro, his mistress. When Danglard has a vision of reviving the cancan, he is inspired to cast the young laundress Nini, instead of Lola. Jealousies arise as he attempts to bring his show to the Moulin Rouge.
