Press Play to start
Chee Beng has a beautiful house, a family, a mortgage and a vocal talent revealed only during family get-togethers. But it all comes under threat when he loses his job. He is not a young man anymore, and his high qualifications do not make getting a new job any easier. His salvation comes in the form of a new position in a music club. A drag music club. The world of drag queens, filled with glitter and the flutter of fake eyelashes, will open completely new possibilities before Chee. Not only financial ones.
While making this colorful music comedy drama, the director's aim was to initiate dialog. A dialog between the warring parts of the Singaporean society, whose conservative and left-wing fractions have long forgotten how to talk to each other. His protagonists are a middle-aged man, struggling with the difficult role of the father of a young boy, and a group of drag queens. The author spent two years in the drag community, learning about the everyday lives and challenges faced by the performers. But the script does not focus on the constant fights and struggles – it is a warm, dynamic, touching film about breaking away from social limitations, mutual inspirations, and the support that people choosing drastically different lifestyles can give each other.
