The Tulse Luper Suitcases is a sweeping trilogy/epic about the life and times of Tulse Luper, a man bigger than the world itself. The film covers some sixty years of recent history from 1928 when the existence of a substance called Uranium was discovered, to the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War in 1989. In Part II, With the Second World War started, Tulse Luper continues to be a prisoner shunted around Northern Europe. He becomes a communicator in code in the grand house and gardens of Vaux in France that has been earmarked as a German Birth Clinic, he is forced to be an usher in the Arc-en-Ciel cinema in Strasbourg, and he is persuaded into female clothing to pose as a sempstress in the bourgeois household of an obsessive anatomist and a professional Ingres-lover at Dinard on the French coast.
