What's a girl to do when a rare hair-loss condition leaves her with an obsession for zany wigs and make-up? Become a drag queen, of course! Having always been an outsider, Prada finally finds her niche when she lands a job at a drag bar full of colorful characters—a world of sequins, feathers, and false eyelashes—and assumes the new identity of Prada Handbag. When Prada is mistaken for a drag queen, she decides to take the stage herself as a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman, and discovers that acceptance —and self-acceptance—can be found in the most unlikely of places. Muriel’s Wedding meets The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert in this glitzy, glam cinematic extravaganza that ravishes the eye and warms the heart.
