A homophobic trucker gets hypnotized into thinking he’s gay, flamboyant and the world's greatest fashion designer. After living this life for 3 years, the truth is revealed to him. He now searches to discover who he really is.

Synopsis

Leon, a long-haul trucker from Nebraska enters a New York comedy club for a night of revelry with his buddy Roy. Expecting to “raise some hell” and “hit on” some girls, his demeanor becomes obnoxious the more he drinks. In an attempt to gain the attention of the ladies, he insults their apparently gay companions by stating his virility, pointing to his “manliness.” Trying to draw a comparison between him and all the other men at the club; “I could never be like those guys,” bellows Leon. The club’s performer for the night takes notice and challenges Leon to come up on stage. The performer, Mike Mezmerize, is a hypnotist-comedian. He quickly puts Leon under his suggestion and tells him that when he awakes, he will be the World’s greatest fashion designer, with Liberace-esque flamboyance and very, very gay.

Upon awakening, his mannerism become effeminate. The crowd laughs at the man, who was a boorish oaf a moment ago, becoming quite uncomfortable sitting on stage and being gawked at. Leon moves off the stage and sees himself in a mirror in a plaid shirt, loose-fit Wrangler jeans and a dingy trucker’s cap, he's ashamed and bolts for the exit. Not to be seen again.

The story picks up 3 years later, as Noel Jones is the rising start of the Fashion World and the toast of New York as he’s set to sign huge deals with retailers and TV networks that will promote his "lines." He has a fashion empire in the making and all the perks that go along with it. His business partner, who he met 3 years earlier, while he was wandering the streets of N.Y. is his “rock.” She keeps his ship “cruising” ahead at full speed. Everything is perfect in Noel Jone’s life, until Mike Mezmerize returns from an extended tour of the Far East and notices that Noel is Leon.
