It’s Thursday night and Al is taking Eve to a film quiz in a local pub. He’s psyching himself up for the ultimate film buff showdown but is disappointed to find the quiz is presented by Teena Bizkit, a drag queen with a razor sharp ability to take any hecklers down a peg.

Agency nurse Krissie Myers is struggling. She can’t bring herself to leave the house, her work is suffering, and her relationships have dwindled to non-existent.
