Join the gayest party this winter and gasp at the drama, laugh at the shade and reads, and as audiences have put it, become a “fly on the wall” for a hot mess of a birthday party.
Miguel invites a select group of friends, including an old high school crush, over for his friend Gerardo’s birthday. His plans for the night are quickly derailed as the alcohol flows, surprise visitors show up, and secrets are revealed. The group must then face their unresolved issues surrounding race, sexuality, and feelings towards one another.
