In the parking lot of the Hummingbird Motel, off the titular highway near New Orleans, the hotel’s residents have gathered to celebrate the life of Miss Ruby, an iconic burlesque queen who has been a mother figure to them all.
Miss Ruby’s life is nearing its end, and she requests that her funeral take place while she is still alive so she can attend the festivities.
As the Mardi Gras-esque celebration continues into the night, the stories of the residents, their pain and disappointments unfold.
