Fifteen years ago, Rose was named Miss Arizona. She takes an offer to lead a life skills class at a women's center despite being a boring stay at home mother locked in an unsatisfactory relationship and lamenting her son's autonomy.
Rose tries to deliver her "Making Your Presence a Present" campaign pitch with a group of four uninterested women who are fleeing violent ex-boyfriends while uncovering remnants of her pageant queen background. But the women really need Rose's gleaming SUV to get them away from peril when it appears at the refuge.
The five set out on an all-night odyssey through the craziest drag club and the city's seediest streets as the ladies struggle to survive and learn what they need most from the experience.
