Tickets: £7 / £6 Conc / £5 Students



The son of a Pentecostal preacher, Michael is a bullied boy from Canada.

He finds his own world in the spandexclad heroes of comic books and TV wrestlers and builds his body until he’s finally able to wear spandex tights himself. After moving to Finland and introducing the pro-wrestling culture there, Michael encounters a young transsexual wrestler called Jessica who contests him both physically and ideologically.
