The character of today's story jumps headlong into a culture he only knows as a spectator: the drag queen show. He is an outsider and feels like a fraud for it, yet this is how he feels not only to the drag queens, but to almost everyone in his life. He decides to prove himself to the world in one motion, through one spectacular show and transformation. Nothing ever goes wrong in putting it all on one big, last bet, right?
