Summary:
"This verite documentary takes us on a year-long ride with an itinerant troupe of cross-dressing performers led by Bich Phung, as they travel the remote southern regions and central highlands of Vietnam. From change rooms, to on-stage performances, to time spent in tour buses, filmmaker Tham Nguyen Thi develops a remarkable rapport with the performers. They share their fears, expose their vulnerabilities, and talk about the challenges of being gay in Vietnam: including employment discrimination and dealing with audiences who might just as easily throw rocks at the performers as try to hit on them during the show." -- Container.
