Original version with English subtitles
Ten-year-old Denisa Gabor lives with her family in a makeshift encampment in Poland. As a small child, her hearing began to deteriorate until she was no longer able to hear or speak. Denisa uses dance to express herself and nurtures a deep love for Bollywood music and film. THE QUEEN OF SILENCE explores the perspective of a unique child who lives a precarious life at the margins of society.
