Two well-known names from successful series join forces.

New York, June 27, 1969. Jonathan, a timid African-American man in his twenties, ends up on the street after his parents discover that he for the men. He finds refuge with David, a perennial yuppie who is ‘in the closet’ hidden and Jonathan recommends to do the same. But that is outside of Fiora LaRitz counted. The legendary grofgebekte transvestite, that David is better known than he wants to admit it, takes Jonathan on a trip to the Stonewall – a clandestine gay bar where the cops continually invade the motley clientele in the buoy to store. “But not tonight, darling!” Fiora and Jonathan become embroiled in a nocturnal rebellion against the police violence, to the dismay of David. And when Fiora discovered that David hides a secret, the gate of the dam.
