The world of boxing, drag and fishing might have little to do with each other. But they are delightfully merged in the adorable character of Leo, a young black queer kid growing up in a trailer with a fabulous sister and evangelist father. His mother fled to the big city years ago, reportedly becoming a hairdresser to the stars. Leo plans to use his skills as a gender chameleon to train as both a boxer and a drag act in the hope that one will bring him success. But then strange and hunky Declan shows up. This fun debut is perfect for those who know what it means to be young and are searching for a way out.
