Simon is a rising star in Montreal’s drag queen scene. It’s love at first sight when he meets Olivier, the new recruit at the bar-show where he performs. While Simon believes he is living an electrifying love story, a toxic and destructive dynamic develops between them.

At the same time, Claire, Simon’s mother, a famous opera singer, returns to work in the country after 15 years of absence. Fascinated by this woman whom he hardly knows anymore but whom he idealizes, Simon persists in trying to create a bond with her. Weakened by the failure of these two impossible loves, Simon will have no other choice but to realize that he deserves better. Taking place in Montreal’s vibrant drag scene, Sophie Dupuis crafts a gorgeous love story that is also an emotional thriller.
