Jesus (Héctor Medina) a shy, delicate, struggling hairdresser finds a genuine opportunity to enrich his life when he is given the chance to perform as a Drag Artist. But when Jesus'abusive estranged father returns, he forcefully forbids the young man from performing. Jesus must decide to either fulfil his potential or wilt under the dictate of his father. What unfolds is a bittersweet story of pain, regret, and reconciliation, as the two men learn to know and respect each other for the first time.

Featuring boisterous and often heart-breaking drag performance, Paddy Breathnach's Oscar-shortlisted crowd-pleaser is a tender and compassionate tale of finding one's true voice.
