Due to the economic and social consensus of the present Taiwan, it is a big challenge for those who wants to create a family with a child of one’s own. Not to mention for the marginalized transgendered community, there is a great revolution of equalization that has not yet succeeded.

Cherry identified herself as a drag queen. She just had a fight right before the show, finding out her boyfriend had been cheating sleeping with another girl for a long time. Later, she pulled herself together and walked on her way to work, she met with an abandoned baby. When she was performing sparkly on the stage with her close sister, Lena, they discovered something weird about this baby…

The baby that intruded Cherry’s life at the night has given her a short fantasy of having an ordinary family with a child. Yet once again, it reminded her and Lena with a cruel reality of their actual life.

This is a journey about a drag queen exploring herself with an abandoned baby at an unconventional night. It is also a story about the searching of one’s the sense of belonging and one’s own.
