CGiii Comment

One of just a few Asian films featuring a transwoman actor, this lighthearted, action-packed adventure stars Huong Giang (Miss International Queen 2018) as Duong, a struggling stuntperson making barely enough to survive. One day, Duong discovers a life-threatening conspiracy that causes them to go into hiding from criminals. On the urging of a friend, Duong secretly signs up for gender-affirming procedures in Thailand. Soon after, her estranged father suddenly falls ill, and the financial burden causes Duong to risk anonymity by entering a cis beauty pageant in hopes of winning the grand prize to help pay the hospital bills. Can she claim the crown while staying one step ahead of the mob?
