Bruise and Thorn are Nuyorican, queer, and tired af of their jobs at a busted-up laundromat in Jamaica, Queens. But not for long: Bruise is saving up to become a chef (like on “Chopped!”), and Thorn spits bars on street corners, one “America’s Got Talent” audition away from becoming the Boricua Nikki Minaj. When the laundromat’s basement turns out to be an illegal cockfighting ring, the cousins can’t tell if this is an opportunity to cash out and become their most fabulous selves-or a trap to keep them locked into what everyone expects them to be.
