Bella is a young transsexual who dreams of glamour from behind prison walls – in a world without women, Bella is Queen.
Bella’s tattooing skills and sharp wit allow her to survive amongst the male inmates, but her determination to behave and look like a woman makes her a target for prison-officer Goff.
When Goff attempts to destroy her dreams, Bella takes a courageous stand. (Short film) Winner, Regensburg Short Film Festival 1999.
