From the show:
1615. Venice. A cosmopolitan city populated by people from many nations and predilections. Entwined in strange ways are the intriguing lives of a once notorious woman who now masquerades as a nun, a couturier who wears his own gowns, his brainy African lover, a mysterious Don Juan, a violin-playing novice and a 60-year-old virgin dressmaker. An unusual comedy with captivating twists, Brocade will amuse and surprise.
See it if A designer who grew up in a nunnery/orphanage/brothel is revealed that his family is near and dear. "Twelve nuns giving birth in one year."
Don't see it if A designer raised in a brothel of the blessed, which fronted as convent, wearing his own gowns, clothing prostitutes, should be a bawdy romp
