Queen of Glory

Directed by Nana Mensah & Nana Mensah

Sarah Obeng, the academically brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, decides to quit her Ivy League PhD programme to follow her married lover to Ohio. But when Sarah’s mother dies suddenly, she bequeaths her daughter a Christian bookstore in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx where Sarah was raised. 

Finding herself responsible for both her mother’s funeral arrangements and her beloved business, Sarah is reborn through her unexpected inheritance. Nana Mensah writes, directs and stars in a confident directorial debut which provokes laughter and empathy in equal measure.
