Sasha is 13 years old and her mother is no longer alive. But Sasha refuses to cry. She is determined to never be like her mother, and to make her father laugh again. To cope with this, she is not allowed to read books and she has to shave off her hair and turn down the puppy she always wanted. And above all, she must become a comedy queen.
Comedy Queen is a film about finding yourself when the world is broken – about refusing to grieve, daring to do so and daring to move on.
