When transgender working girl Sin-Dee hears that her hustler beau has been cheating, she drags gal pal Alexandra on a wild pimp chase from donut shops to drug dens down Santa Monica Boulevard. Over 24 hours on Christmas Eve, subcultures clash and friends become enemies and then friends again, until all converge for an exuberant finale. Featuring dazzling, inventive cinematography shot entirely on an iPhone, this neon-lit romp from writer, director, and editor Sean Baker (Starlet) is high energy, high contrast, and equal parts snark and heart. Executive produced by Mark & Jay Duplass. A Magnolia Pictures release.
