Exes, new loves, career hurdles, self-acceptance – it’s a lot to navigate even when you’re not in lockdown! When Max’s two-week dog-sitting gig becomes an extended stay – with old flame Rafael as his unexpected housemate – this wild ride heats up! Since their bitter split, Rafael has identified as nonbinary and now strives to be the world’s most fabulous Latina drag queen. And that’s a challenge for Max, who’s still nursing childhood wounds from enforced gender conformity.
This heartfelt comedy (with a few electrifying musical interludes!) is born of the real-life friendship between its writers, directors, and stars, Rafael Albarran and Trent Kendrick. Their loving embrace of a movie tells a tale of sex, drag, families of choice and origin, the wisdom of elders, and the ultimate power of accepting one’s own complex nature. And if you don’t know what the initials F.L.Y. stand for, you’ll love finding out for yourself at the movie’s surprising and uplifting finale!
