Synopsis

1979, New York City. Louise Adler is a privileged, well-bred twenty-two-year-old girl who has everything she was ever raised to want, but, deep down, she’s bored. When her life starts to lose its shimmer of perfection, she leaves her goody-two-shoes past behind, changes her name to the more exciting Ellie, and goes off in search of excitement. One night at a gay disco, she is captivated by a fabulous drag performer. Ellie infiltrates this queen's circle, and these two become the unlikeliest of lovers. Thus begins a tragic true tale of love, fame, obsession, and, ultimately, murder.
