Documentary about David, a flamboyant 15-year-old boy who decides he wants to be the Carnival Queen in his small English village. He succeeds, but meets resistance from some of the more traditional villagers. Although for David being in the closet just isn't possible, it's still astonishing to see his determination to stand openly and proudly. Recommended.
