Run Time: 90 minutes
A newly-arrived Egyptian immigrant, Nabil (Ryan Ali), and a trans drag mother, Malibu (Alexandra Billings, TRANSPARENT), find solace in the blossoming friendship they discover with each other. As Malibu teaches Nabil in the ways of drag and Nabil helps Malibu's effort to save her queer bar from "renoviction," they realize that their efforts to cling to the past are holding them back from manifesting the legacy their loved ones would have wanted.
