Introducing Martin Allen, an ordinary young man in a hospital dying from an extraordinary disease. As his doctor and nurse attend to an ever-worsening condition, Marty creates an autobiographical performance in the form of a sold out variety show, of which only he and the audience seem to be aware. Grim realities of the ward blur into a surreal universe of drag cabaret, as he confuses his life's story with the history of America’s most notorious food contaminator. Martin gives us the show of his life and literally every last thing he has.
