Tired of losing all the beauty competitions in their hometown of Davao City, six dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans travel north to Cagayan de Oro with a single mission: to conquer the grandest competition of beauty and brains in the whole province. They figure the small town gays will never stand a chance against big city boys like them.
As they travel through the breathtaking landscape and cultural vignettes of rural Mindanao, each character struggles to win just a single title, while also battling their own inner demons. Blinded by their belief in the power of their so-called beauty, they still have to prove to themselves that whether on or off stage, beauty doesn’t come in packages wrapped in foundation, mascara, eyeliners and witty beauty pageant answers. Their travels will bring them back to basics of themselves and of each other. And what they will discover about themselves might just teach them that being a run-away loser is not ugly after all. —thethankyougirls.com
