The exciting world of drag queens Cybersissi and BayBjane are at the center of this documentary fairytale with the highly emotional music of Gustav Mahler as well as elaborate fantasy sequences. The story of friendship and victories over disability earned it the audience award at the Transcreen Film Festival Amsterdam in 2013. Cybersissi and BayBjane are two extraterrestrial ghosts on and behind the stage of the international drag queen party circus. With extreme creativity and their well calculated freak appearance, they turn their shows into huge events. At only 4 ft 10 inches, Mourad owns the title of “shortest drag queen in the world” and, despite physical disabilities, has achieved larger than life performer status. He was helped by multitalented artist Antoine, an academic with a difficult family background.
