The film directed by Todd Stephens is a part of his series of homosexual movies, which are set in the city of Sandusky (Todd's hometown). The plot of Swan Song is based on the story of Patrick Fitzenbarger, the former star of the style world, who is now monotonously wasting his days in a nursing home.
The main character is often visited by memories of the lost luxury of his life, but all this is quickly destroyed by the atmosphere of hopelessness among the elderly around who have already been preparing for death. One day a notary comes to visit Patrick and offers him the last job — to do hair and makeup for the newly deceased politician Rita Parker-Sloan, who was his regular client in the past. It was the moment his life started changing from.
During the film he learns to re-experience emotions, fight skeletons in the cupboard, forgive, have fun and reflect. By all of his actions Patrick shows that it is not the environment that affects the person, but the person does the situation. So, for example, the main character did the hair for a sick woman who could not even move; he sported around the city in a green suit that looked out of place against the backdrop of an everyday city but suited Patrick like no other. Even after his death, he remained true to himself: if he dies, so only in beautiful shoes.
