Can drag and boxing meet head on? Set amid the vast, pastel skies of the North, Alaska is a Drag digs deeper into breaking down this hard-hitting query.

After being discovered and recruited by a boxing coach, outsider Leo (Martin L. Washington Jr.) sees an opportunity to break free from the small-town burden of fish canning and getting beaten up by bullies—not to mention the potential of impressing the cute new boy in town, Declan (Matt Dallas). With the help of his resilient sister Tristen (YouTube star Maya Washington), Leo sets out to pack a good punch, keeping sight of his real dream: drag superstardom.

Shaz Bennett's charismatic feature debut offers a joyful blend of friendship, liberty and drag extravagance imbued with the spirit of fighting, perseverance and the will to survive.
