Storyline

Down-and-out middle-aged sisters Dot and Betty have the past spent fifteen years performing in a vaudeville act inspired by classic 1960s Japanese horror movies. As the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur, Dot longs to escape the world of 'The Two Tiny Beauties of Infant Island,' while Betty begins to believe that Monsura is actually coming to save her - like a Phoenix from the ashes. We see Betty and Dot in their hotel room. Dot cleans and sifts through collection notices while Betty rehearses her dance moves in the mirror and weeps while watching old Japanese monster movies. After their VFW lodge performance the following day, Dot tells Betty that she is quitting the act and running away with Stu, the club owner, after witnessing two drag-queens parody their act (seen in flashback). Dot invites Betty to her wedding at City Hall the next morning, leaving Betty alone in the dressing room. 'If Monsura doesn't come tonight, then I will be there.' Devastated, Betty turns out ...
