Variété is a comical animation film about a plate spinner. The youg artist starts his act by placing his parents on the revolving plate. He spins them around fast, balancing them high on top of the long pole. Then he does the same with a girlfriend and a school teacher. While he keeps several poles with plates with people in balance, he slowly grows older. His act becomes more and more hectic and difficult when more people keep turning up on stage to get spinned on plates; friends, a demanding boss, a wife ...
Soon plates begin to fall.
