The series follows a drag queen who ends up accidentally acquiring a pre-teen best friend while on the road trying to change her life after a betrayal sets her back both financially and spiritually. The unlikely pair bond as they get to know each other, and form a little family. It's basically The Mandalorian with wigs and sequins — though Netflix more aptly describes it as "part Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, part Touched by an Angel" and promises a "killer musical number" at every stop on the way. Would you expect anything less?
