There are African-American men in some of New Orleans’ roughest neighborhoods who spend all year sewing feathered suits. All On A Mardi Gras Day follows Demond, who makes huge sacrifices to be Big Chief in this secret, 200-year old tradition known as Mardi Gras Indians. When the day comes, he battles in a competition that will decide who’s “the prettiest.”
