In Airline Highway, Miss Ruby, a legendary stripper who lit up the glitzy runways of burlesque houses, has requested that her funeral be held before she dies. As the celebration begins in the parking lot of The Hummingbird, a once-glamorous motel on New Orleans’ infamous Airline Highway, a diverse collection of friends gather to celebrate the life of Miss Ruby. Included are strippers, grifters, and philosophers, all of whom are dedicated to throwing and enjoying on big send-off party.
