23-year-old Dylan (Molly Nutley), who’s mourning the loss of her mother, joins a local drag act, pretending to be a young man with international dancing experience. A contrived and predictable story that tries to touch our hearts with its depiction of grief and entertain us with Dylan’s attempts to revive a failing drag show where the aging star refuses to leave Gloria Gaynor in the past. Nutley is never convincing as a man, but her mother, director Helena Bergström, still knows how to take advantage of her charm.
