Who in the Hell is Rumi Missabu? Find out as we follow the wild life of a counter-culture and drag icon who would eventually become known as Rumi Missabu. A founding member of the radical queer performance group, The Cockettes, Rumi leaves Hollywood a trained child actor and dives headfirst into the LSD fueled hippie culture of San Francisco. The lifestyle and brief brush with celebrity leads to Rumi burning out and disappearing off the grid for decades. Through anecdotes and interviews with the male actress at it's center, as well as fever-dream animation bringing to life those tales too outlandish to go unseen, RUMINATIONS explores a cult performance legend's rise, fall, and re-emergence at the end of his life.
