This documentary chronicles the anything-goes revelry of New Orleans' famed Mardi Gras celebrations, from the hours of lavish preparation to the night of carnal jubilee itself. People from all walks of life cut loose, forgetting about their problems and surrendering to fantasy. Whether it's donning an outrageous outfit, dancing on a float or stripping for beads, Mardi Gras is shown here to be about more than an excuse to party -- it's about opening up life to possibility.
