A PhD student's life is thrown into disarray when her mother dies suddenly and makes her the owner of a neighbourhood Christian bookshop in the Bronx, in writer-director-star Nana Mensah's funny and charming film.

Sarah Obeng (Mensah) is the brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, who is preparing to quit her Ivy League PhD program to follow her lover to Ohio. When her mother dies suddenly and bequeaths Sarah a Christian bookstore in the section of the Bronx where she was raised, Sarah must must cope with death, betrayal and cultural expectations while dealing with her estranged father, her married boyfriend and the ex-con who is now her employee.

A follow-up on the classic immigrant's tale, Queen of Glory provokes laughter and empathy, as its heroine is reborn through her inheritance.

"Mensah's tightly conceived, witty and compassionate dark comedy is a love letter to children of Ghanaian immigrants and to the Bronx" - Hollywood Reporter
