In this modern update of "Macbeth," competitive drag queen Latrine Dion plots to win the National Grand Dame Competition.
Scottish immigrants, Latrine and her husband Peyton are as new to the United States as they are to competitive drag queenery. The intimidating lineup of Queens includes Cunny Corleone, Ina Godda the Diva, Chutney Spears, Blanche BuDois, and Salma Nellaall loaded with talent and experience that could rob Latrine of her title.
Latrine needs the title of Grand Dame to establish herself in the U.S. Drag World. Peyton wants the prize money to jump start their American Dream. When racial and cultural prejudices collide with gay politics, a convenient technicality reduces her ranking to runner up and puts her on the alternate list for the Duchess Regionals. No Duchess title. No $25,000 prize money. No moving on to Grand Dame Nationals. No chance at the $100,000 prize. No buying a house. No Gay American Dream.
Urged on by her husband Peyton, Latrine orchestrates little accidents to incapacitate the competition. But her efforts to injure the local talent have deadly consequences. Soon homicide detectives are mixing with the Twinks and Bears to watch Latrine’s performance, and Peyton can’t get that damn glitter off his hands.
