Here, Mason sings from musicals such as Sunset Boulevard, in which she appeared as Norma Desmond, and Mamma Mia! and Wonderland, in which she created the respective roles of Tanya and the Queen of Hearts.

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.
