QUEENS OF HEART brings to the screen the first psychological study of drag performance, set in the oldest surviving female impersonation club in the United States. Portland's Darcelle XV Showplace has become a rite of passage for young women throughout the Pacific Northwest celebrating their "last night out" before getting married. Seventy-five year old Darcelle XV, co-proprietor, performer, and activist, comforts and confronts her audiences, from the brides gone wild and their nervous male companions, to gays and lesbians celebrating a step in coming out, to older women recovering from an illness or divorce.
