Alifu is a Taiwanese-indigenous, twenty-something man who works at a salon in the city. He has a dream—to fully transition into a woman. However, as an only "son" he is under pressure to succeed his father as chief of the tribe. Peizhan, a lesbian and Alifu's roommate and colleague, is always on his side. However, she gradually finds out her feelings toward Alifu are not so platonic after all.
Alice the Prince/ss treats our heroes as human beings yet still captures the struggles of the LGBT community with eloquence and poise.
