QUEEN is the story of Ine, who at 25 years old realizes she has grown into a life she hasn't chosen herself. In an attempt to awaken both herself and her uninterested boyfriend Petter (26), she goes to a pole dancing class where she meets Rebecka (24) - a girl that is everything Ine isn't.

Through Rebecka, Ine gets a glimpse into a world she has been completely isolated from - a world where people fight for the freedom to be themselves completely unfiltered, and where colors and glitter steps into place for the grey, squared life she has been leading.

Ines fascination with Rebecka grows into something she soon wonders if is infatuation. But is it Rebecka she is infatuated with, or is it her life?

In "What we (don't) know", two people deal with their lack of connection in very different ways. One is completely stuck in place, while the other has gone far over the edge.

At the sight of each other they do what humans always do - compare, imagine and dream.
