Connie and Carla are best friends who want to make a name for themselves in the musical theater. One night, Connie and Carla witness a low-level Mafiosi hit. The gals are seen by the shooters, and they hit the road in fear for their lives. Connie and Carla end up in Los Angeles, needing new identities. After watching a drag review, they decide to pose as drag queens. Their act is an immediate hit, and soon they're the toast of L.A.'s gay community. Meanwhile, Connie falls for Jeff, a regular guy looking for his cross-dressing brother.
