Set during the 1960s in Singapore, when Bugis Street was the centre for drag clubs and transvestite prostitution. The story centres on Lian, a young 16-year-old from Malacca, who gets a job as a recep-tionist at the Sin-Sin Hotel. It’s the home of a gaggle of drag queens, all of whom have stories of broken hearts and drunken sailors. Lian learns more about life, lipstick and eyeliner than most—mainly from Drago, a Paris-based drag queen, back in town to look after her ailing mother.
