On the steps outside New York City’s dizzying central bus station, Port Authority, a girl named Wye vogues with her siblings.  Paul, a young drifter, watches her, transfixed by her beauty. After he seeks her out, an intense love soon blossoms between them. Wye introduces him to the ballroom community, an underground LGBTQ subculture, and to her house, a self-selected chosen family. But when Paul discovers Wye is trans, he is forced to confront his feelings for her and the social forces that seek to rupture their bond.

Executive-produced by MARTIN SCORSESE. A feature debut by up-and-coming visual artist and writer of MOBILE HOMES (Cannes 2017 Director’s Fortnight) Danielle Lessovitz.
