An aspiring performer struggles to breathe life into a new character she's created. Suddenly, she sees him: the real-life doppelgänger of her masked character. Where's the line between inspiration and theft? A gender-bending romantic comedy that celebrates those who defy the status quo in their search for self-expression.
