A fascinating and revealing feature film about Queen Beatrix as a woman, a mother, a wife and as a queen.
A battle is raging within our kingdom. It is the day of the state opening of parliament, a year has passed since the death of her beloved Prince Claus and Beatrix has doubts about everything - the monarchy, the trustworthiness of her sons and, finally, about herself. Tensions mount when the Prime Minister wants to change the text just before Beatrix’s "Budget Day” speech. She is resisting. She doesn't want to be the woman who dances to another's tune any longer…
