Hazendal Wine Estate farmhands Hope, Rollie, and Pietie are not your typical South African vineyard workers. Hope aspires to winning the local drag queen pageant, Rollie dreams of a husband and retaining the local drag queen crown, and Pietie struggles with his religious upbringing while obsessing over his roses, chickens, and pigeons. These transgender wine workers confront prejudice at every turn, from their own farming communities, city transgenders and the world at large. Together they manage to find the fabulous in the fraught and offer a portrait of triumph in togetherness rather than loneliness in victimization.
