A film journey through a universe of female masculinity. A legendary Drag King Night in New York is the point of departure for an odyssey to transgendered worlds, where women become men – some for a night, others for their whole lives.

A rare opportunity to glance behind the curtains of a rare, poignant drag form, especially important now that drag queens have become mainstream but drag kings still remain in the dark. Some of the kings pictured in the film are dead, some are hard to track down, so to see their performances, and to breathe in the sickly air of the late 90s-00s is priceless.
