A Chilean couple spends their last morning together in The Shower as their relationship falls apart. Queer Xicana burlesque diva La Chica Boom explores the enduring lament of failure, discontent, and loss in creating the hyper racial and gendered self on stage in FML. When Raul is asked to entertain the local landowner's son, an intense game of power and pride starts between the two boys in A World for Raul.
