Queen of Glory

Sarah is a Ghanaian-American neuro-oncologist at Columbia University with a plan to follow her married boyfriend to Ohio, finish her dissertation, and then look for work. But when her mom suddenly passes away, Sarah inherits her Christian bookstore, King of Glory, in the Bronx and pivots to face a sea of customs, rituals, and expectations about how her cultural family celebrates and mourns their dead. She finds high-level academics a lot easier than these real-life lessons of loss, grief, conflict, and immigrant identity. Writer/director/star Nana Mensah’s reflective indie film juxtaposes the Ghanaian traditions with the colorful Bronx, evoking a visceral sense of place that becomes the bedrock for Sarah’s emerging sense of self.
