SYNOPSIS

After a late night out in the city, a man takes a black car back to his ordinary suburban house. Along the way he reimagines haunting memories – the breakdown of his disengaged marriage and the exhilaration of his affair with an alluring drag queen. He finally arrives home, lost in a fantasy of devotion and desire. Through dance and the soul-stirring music of Dolly Parton, he awakens at the dawn of a new day.

The story of Cologne highlights the universal truth that we all live our lives choosing how we present ourselves to the world. We are all in drag. And when we are able to recognize the drag we are wearing, we have the chance to really know ourselves.
