When sixth-grader boy Qiu is bullied in school for having gay dads, his stepfather Howard, a flamboyant Jazz trumpet player, must confront his own nightmares of childhood bulling before he can provide his son a feeling of security.

Swingin' is the first dramedy/music film of its kind since Taiwan became the first (and only as of today) country in Asia to legalize same-sex in 2019.

十一歲的球球有一對同志爸爸,大家都笑他一定也是GAY!故事發生的這天,他終於向全世界證明他可是很 MAN 的!
