Plot summary

What is Climax movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Climax" movie plot summary.

In the winter of 1996, a professional French dance troupe, led by manager Emmanuelle (Claude-Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull) and choreographer Selva (Sofia Boutella), gathers in a rural, abandoned school to rehearse an upcoming performance. After succeeding in completing the elaborate closing piece of the dance, the group commence a celebratory after-party, dancing and drinking sangria made by Emmanuelle, while DJ Daddy (Kiddy Smile) provides music. The diverse group has several personal issues and share gossip about one another during the celebration.
As the party progresses, the dancers get increasingly agitated and confused and eventually come to the conclusion that the sangria has been spiked with a hallucinogen, presumably LSD. At first they accuse Emmanuelle since she made the drink, but she points out that she drank it and is also suffering from its effects. Taylor (Taylor Kastle), already resentful towards Omar (Adrien Sissoko) for dating his sister Gazelle (Giselle Palmer), points out that Omar, a teetotaler, has not touched the sangria and accuses him of being the one responsible. The group gets angry and locks him outside the building in freezing conditions.
Emmanuelle sees her young son, Tito (Vince Galliot Cumant), drinking the sangria and locks him inside an electrical room to protect him from the agitated dancers. Selva goes to the room of her friend Lou (Souheila Yacoub), who is also feeling ill despite not having drunk. Lou confesses that she did not drink because she is pregnant. Dom, strongly affected by the drug, enters the room, accuses Lou of spiking the drink and kicks her several times in the stomach, not believing her claim of being pregnant; Lou, injured, retching, and weeping, passes through an altercation between Alaia (Alaia Alsafir) and Jennifer in the kitchen due to Jennifer's refusal to share her cocaine, during which Jennifer's hair is set aflame after Alaia pushes her against a portable stove.
