In this witty father-son story, we are introduced to Varun, a former scammer, and River, a trans drag performer, as they venture on a road trip across South Africa to rescue River’s long-lost mother from a rehab clinic in eSwatini. River’s only worry is missing Her Vajesty’s Drag Competition and the opportunity to win the prize money to pay for his top surgery. With secrets bubbling to the surface and a competition to win, their relationship will be tested like never before. Ian and Gabe Gabriel, the family duo behind “Runs in the Family”, bring us a heartfelt story about acceptance, community, and unconditional love. There is nothing stronger than familial love, whether biological or chosen!
