Synopsis

It's drag night at Mrs Miller's Bar in Trinidad. As Carnival fever raises temperatures outside, six beautiful 'ladies' prepare backstage, risking all to put on their most daring show yet...even if it attracts unwanted attention from the law! Will they make it through to the finale or will the riot police get there first?
