This feature-length documentary brings to the screen the first psychological study of drag performance, set in the oldest surviving female impersonation club in the United States. Seventy-five year old Darcelle XV comforts and confronts her audiences, from the brides gone wild and their nervous male companions, to gays and lesbians celebrating a step in coming out. The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes, showing how the work of drag requires a deep understanding of human psychology.
