“Entertaining, hilarious, and visually ripe…with its powerful message of body confidence and queer love, this is a little film that could have a big impact.”– Indiewire

After years of long distance, artists Shane O’Neill and Dusty Childers celebrate their reunion at a Stevie Nicks concert, where they share a brush with magic. A testament to radical queer love and the influence of celebrities in LGBTQ culture, first-time director Sara Kiener’s animated doc short showcases the extravagant banter of two outsized personalities, and features hand-drawn illustrations by Maya Edelman (Collective: Unconscious, A Touch of Sugar) and original synth-pop music by Ted Ottaviano from Book of Love (American Psycho; Planes, Trains & Automobiles).
