A young man loses his job in a boring suburban town, now in his thirties, he seems to be coasting life down the path of no hope nor joy. But on one random night, he bumps into an old love interest and his world turns upside down. He has one more chance to win her back before she is set to leave town by entering her very own drag contest, organised to raise money for a local charity. Only two things that stand in his way, her incredibly annoying yet simple boyfriend and Brad's own self-sabotaging doubt. Does Brad have what it takes to even show up on the night? What was initially meant to be a place to impress his former girlfriend soon becomes the biggest life lesson he'll ever face.
