CAN-CAN is set in the Montmartre district of Paris in 1893. At the Bal Du Paradis Cafe, owned by La Momme Pistache, the naughty Can-Can dance is performed. After a police raid, the dancers are arrested and the ensuing court case results in Judge Aristide Forrestier personally investigating the charges of 'lewd and lascivious dancing'. Although forewarned of complications by his friend, Judge Paul Barriere, Aristide falls in love with Pistache and is introduced to some diverse characters and situations.

Boris Adzinidzinadze, a Bulgarian sculptor, is courting Claudine the lead dancer at the Bal Du Paradis. Their friends Theophile, Etienne, Hercule and Monique and the vivacious Can-Can dancers are all trying to impress the suave, influential Art Critic, Hilaire Jussac. The resulting situations are fun-filled and colourful, climaxing in an exhilarating performance of the Can-Can.
