About the work


“I’ll go backstage to change.” said Mr. Paul. Sachi, an office worker who lived in a dark and narrow world, comes to New York to pursue her childhood dream of studying fashion. When struck by misfortune, she is rescued by Mr. Paul, a surprising revelation as he is a drag queen! Through a twist of fate, she assists him in creating a costume, and Sachi's world begins to blossom with vibrant colors. Accompanying Paul to her first gay bar, she encounters a mysterious man named Ken. Captivated by the dazzling world she had never known, Sachi contemplates Paul's offer. Thus, the enigmatic journey of three individuals from different nationalities and genders commences.
