In post-Soviet Poland, a young woman tries to fill the space left by
her eccentric mother while struggling to fit in modern life.
Playing with form and content, Queenless is a fierceless story about the desire to live; about great, crazy and greedy love between a mother and a daughter.

Marcinów finds her own language to describe loss
and extreme intimacy: trance-like, strong, witty, yet
trembling, cruelly honest, full of tenderness and longing.
