“Bonbon Voyage” takes place on a cruise ship in the 1950s. When a beauty queen sees a poster touting a “Swimsuit Contest for Bathing Beauties!” her dreams of victory and accolades seem to be in direct conflict with her love of desserts. In her determination to win, and she runs a gauntlet of bonbons, cupcakes and other treats, fighting against her desires and fear of gaining weight. Her wordless struggles with temptation hold a comic mirror to pop culture’s unrealistic female body imagery and fat-shaming.
