Synopsis

A semi-retired drag queen named Burger is determined to win a contest at Toronto's Bar 501. At forty-something, Burger is a crowd favorite but lacks the habitual experience of drag queens his age. But his involvement with the many communities of the city, the punks from the bar he works at or the young queers he protects, might help him win the competition. A soft-spoken voiceover conveys a sense of understated emotional crisis that permeates the film.
