The film"s page

Danglard, a show producer, has started renovation work on an old building that he calls the Moulin Rouge. He is betting that he can turn an old quadrille called the Cancan into a success and turn a young washing woman called Nini into a star dancer. Danglard's project will face Lola's jealous love for him, his backer's withdrawal, and the Montmartre pimps. Despite injuries and ruin, Danglard doesn't give up and opening night at the Moulin Rouge is a smashing success.
