With New Orleans' annual BUKU Fest right around the corner, Big Freedia hires a fiery new creative director to revamp her live show—which hasn't changed in years. And if that isn't challenging enough, the dance crew seems utterly uninspired and has failed to bring that quintessential bounce energy to the stage.
While the dancers have always relied on twerking, the newly hired creative boss isn't having it. "Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk—that shit's gonna be over in about one month," he tells them.
Meanwhile, two graphic designers compete for the cover design of Freedia's debut album. The bounce diva also deals with her mother's declining health, which takes a turn for the worst during Freedia's overnight trip out of town.
