As a teenager, D.J. dreamed of one day becoming a professional wrestler and following in the footsteps of his masked childhood hero. After experiencing the bittersweet realities of growing up, however, he finds himself living a very different life as a thirty-year-old claims adjuster, stuck in a deadening routine.

When he dons an unorthodox wardrobe and begins wearing it everywhere, he becomes an unlikely celebrity and soon finds himself making a difficult decision: will he allow the newfound fame to go to his head, or will he fight to maintain the values he has held dear since days of his youth?

MASCARA CONTRA MASCARA is a raucous, rollicking, social satire, every bit as side-splitting as it is thought-provoking. James Swift ’s tale of cultural fiction is an offbeat comedy that’s sure to tickle the funny bones of the assimilated and the isolated alike.
