The Queen of My Dreams follows a distant mother and daughter as they come of age in two different eras.

Azra, a Pakistani woman living in Toronto, is worlds apart from her conservative Muslim mother. When her father suddenly dies on a trip home to Pakistan, Azra finds herself back home being asked to play the role of perfect daughter. As we move back and forth from her mother’s youth in Karachi to her own coming-of-age in rural Nova Scotia, similarities between two lives that feel so different are revealed.

Fawzia Mirza’s striking feature debut is a colourful, Bollywood-inspired journey through memories, both real and imagined.
