About the film
Maya and Veronique – The Drag Mother and Daughter of India is an honest, outspoken and uncensored documentary on two drag queens. This drag mother-daughter duo spill the beans on their relationship, their drag lives and what it means to be drag queens. This documentary film explores a unique “mother-daughter relationship” within the drag world. Maya, the drag mother is more experienced and knows her craft. Like many mothers, she is stern with her daughter and composed under any given situation. On the other hand, Veronique the drag daughter is risqué and doesn’t shy away from shocking people.Like many mother-daughter pairs, these two are also poles apart, but it’s their friendship, their mutual love and respect for each other, and their chemistry that leaves the viewer asking for more.
