On the steps outside New York City’s dizzying central bus station, Port Authority, a beautiful girl named Wye vogues with her friends. Paul, a young teenager who has just arrived in the big city, watches, transfixed by her. Wye belongs to a “ballroom community” of voguing queer minority youth. As their love story blossoms, Paul discovers Wye is trans. He is then forced to confront his own identity and what it means to belong.
