PLOT Comedy about nine of Sweden's most accredited actresses compete for the title role in a big Hollywood production: a re-make of the Garbo 1933 classic Queen Christina. They have all made screen tests and are now waiting to hear who got the part. Even their men are in the business: they are actors, directors or producers. We follow the main characters during the course of a day from an appearance on morning TV, through rehearsals, photo shoots, shooting commercials and stage performances and finally gathering late at night to celebrate a birthday. Then, it is revealed, who got the part...
