In Mother’s, Kimi is a young, gay drag queen who has not yet come out about his profession to his mother, which he and his fellow performers refer to as “dragging out”. In a dressing room they prepare for the night’s performance. Lit in a dark, shadowy blue light, Kimmy bedazzles his audience with a slow, sultry dance to the score of evocative choral music. The on-lookers sit at a long table and watch in awe in a scene reminiscent of “the last supper”.
