With a contract to perform a drag show, Tick (Hugo Weaving), Adam (Guy Pearce) and Bernadette (Terence Stamp) journey across the Australian Outback in their battered, pink tour bus "Priscilla", along the way encountering various groups and individuals.

The film was a surprise worldwide hit and its positive portrayal of LGBT individuals helped to introduce LGBT themes to a mainstream audience. It received predominantly positive reviews and won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design at the 67th Academy Awards. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section of the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and became a cult classic both in Australia and abroad.
