Story

After years of sponging off a fabulously wealthy older woman, four ridiculously beautiful boys are confronted with the most horrifying challenge ever: use their bishi skills to turn their benefactor's socially challenged niece into a beautiful young lady or start paying rent!  And this isn't just any ugly duckling they're facing: she's a psycho, paranoid, neurotic, horror movie obsessed goth chick with a fetish for anatomical dummies, bad skin and a total ignorance of all things feminine!  (And those are her better points!)  But hey, rent's expensive and job openings for pretty boys are scarce, so our poor heroes are going to have to suck it up and attempt the ultimate combined exorcism/spa makeover from hell!  It's a Queer Eye FTSG of doom as the infamous Nabeshin unleashed The Wallflower!
