This awarded documentary paints an intimate portrait of the mid- to late 80s ball culture in Harlem and the primarily latino, black, gay and trans community that maintains it. Often considered as the "golden age" of ball culture, within the documentary it comes apparent that the competition is not only for the ball, but also for survival.
