EN - This seven-part black dramedy follows the comical exploits of four gigolos, the Callboys, as testosterone-driven management, petty arguments and deaf-mute ambition make their short-lived business crash and burn.

FR - Trois gigolos s’associent et montent une affaire. Ils seront les Callboys, au service de femmes en quête de compagnie galante. Leur balourdise est compensée par une bonne dose de testostérone, mais cela ne suffit pas toujours. Leur sort est scellé lorsqu’ils commencent à se considérer comme des hommes d’affaires et qu’ils décident de vendre leurs propres godemichets personnalisés.
