Half-prepped before a dressing room mirror in the back of a bustling city gay bar, Russell, an actor turned drag queen, struggling to find his voice, is given a wrenching ultimatum. Overcome by indecision, he escapes to his grandmother’s house in the country. There he finds sardonic Margaret in steep decline. In a perfect, if precarious, solution for both of them, he moves in to protect her from her greatest fear—the local nursing home. In no time, Russell is lighting up the local college bar with his alter ego Fishy Falters. Antagonized by his overprotective mother, a sexy-though-mysterious college boy, a cockney city gay bar owner, and the specter of his failed-artist grandfather, Russell struggles to realize a bold new identity. Meanwhile, Margaret fights to retake control despite her faltering mind. Featuring the brilliant Cloris Leachman in her final starring role before her death in 2021, JUMP, DARLING pairs love of drag with an aging iconic diva to ask the questions about what inspires us to carry on.

This feature film is limited to viewing in California only.
