Bob has trouble speaking up for himself, particularly when it comes to his overbearing wife Diane. On their anniversary dinner at their favourite restaurant, things take a turn for the worse when Diane accidentally locks herself in the bathroom. While she struggles to escape, Bob is mistaken for the blind-date of a chatty drag queen Simone and amid the confusion, a fleeting connection is made. It's a quest for freedom and a tale of mistaken identity, as Diane battles to escape the toilet and Bob finds his voice. And it may just change him forever.
