The rise and fall of the biggest star of travesty show in Prague in the 90´s.
The film tells the story of a man with shocking sincerity and openness in confession of two different personalities, women and men living in one body. Our star was born in 1963 in a small village in north of Czech republic at the time of deep communism. After his military service, he had a daughter. At that time, identified as gay, he decided to leave his wife and daughter and moved to Prague, where he worked as a chef. He began to explore the nightlife of Prague's gay community that lived in secrecy from the mainstream society. With the nickname Sonja Butterfly he started to realize his dreams and desires. Sonja became a member of popular travesty group called Butterflies and within a few years she developed into a real star. In the middle of 90s the group was one of the best on the Czechoslovakian club scene. Their performances in the clubs was sold out, tickets purchased weeks in advance, they perform in TV shows, with popular artists. Sonja experienced a period of glory and she was enjoying new luxury life. But just as a man dressed in a woman dress in the spotlight of cabaret. As Lubos (his mans name) was extremely shy man, he was closed and did not communicate with others at all, trying not to draw any attention to himself. But Sonja, Sonja was wild and very self confident, she was a star always surrounded by many people and fans enjoying endless party. Shaped to the "strong" singer (T. Turner, G. Gaynor, S. Bassey...) she theatrically work with great emotion and irony at the same time so that even travesty critics and conservative people were throwing away inhibitions and became hers fans. Sonja brought new gestures on the scene and all of following travesty groups were copying Sonja's style. The popularity has grown so high that the group Butterflies decided to open their own cabaret.
Sonja was the boss. She was a good artist, but a bad businessman and cabaret bankrupted. Sonja began to make money with prostitution as a woman with a penis, which is available in apartment and on the phone. At this time she fully addicted to drugs and began to disappear. All robes, high heels, wigs she exchanged for drugs. When Sonja got lost, Lubos stayed alone and he became a homeless HIV positive man.
