Miss Mona Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This unflinching, provocative drama is set in the slums of Gay Paree, where dwells the dregs and fringe of French society. There Miss Mona, an aging drag queen, dreams of becoming a real woman before he dies. Unfortunately, an old lover stole all the money he was saving so he could become a she instead. Miss Mona finally gets his chance to earn more cash when he meets a destitute young Arab, an illegal immigrant. The queen takes the Arab in and convinces the destitute and desperate youth that he will make enough money to buy immigration papers if he becomes a prostitute. The Arab reluctantly agrees to it, but does not realize that the money he grits his teeth to earn is actually going to pay for Mona's dream surgery. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
