According to press notes, "When her marriage starts to crumble, Brig returns to NYC to help her best friends open a glitzy new queer club in the East Village. As the trio prepares for the opening night, Brig becomes inspired by the world of drag around her and decides to try it herself. When her first performance as a drag king is a whirlwind success, suddenly the life she knew no longer exists."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
