Synopsis

In the Kingdom of Tonga, the last remaining monarchy in the Pacific, traditional culture clashes with modern religious zealotry. And on the eve of the biggest day in her life, a young transgender beauty contestant is given an ultimatum by her Mormon family: "If you choose to participate in that pageant, you can pack your bags and get out of this house." With a fierce determination, Lady Eva takes off on a journey to become her true self – with a little inspiration from Tina Turner along the way.
