Simon is a rising star on the Montreal drag scene. It's love at first sight when he meets Olivier, the new recruit to the bar show where he performs. While Simon thinks he's in for an electrifying love affair, a toxic and destructive dynamic develops between them. At the same time, Simon's mother, Claire, a famous opera singer, returns home after a 15-year absence. Fascinated by this woman he hardly knows but idealizes, Simon persists in trying to create a bond with her. Weakened by the failure of these two impossible loves, Simon has no choice but to realize that he deserves better. Touching, tender, and funny, Solo teaches us all to be who we are.
