Misguided Illusions

In the world of Drag Queens, there's a fine line between fantasy and reality. When the two collide not even a serial killer can decide.

Misguided Illusions

The illusion of beauty becomes a mask to hide the truth. When a man wears female attire does he do it for fun, fantasy, or fetish? Is he a drag queen or a cross dresser. Perhaps he is an actor or even yet a serial killer!

Eric and George Perez, two brothers once inseparable as kids are now divided by the dislike of each other's lifestyle. Eric is an entertainer at a drag revue while George works as a cop. Daniel Connors, a closeted cop befriends Eric and they keep their relationship a secret from George. In a twist of fate, they are compelled into a reunion to stop a serial killer's obsession in the avant-garde world of female impersonation in New York City, as Eric becomes the next target.
