The story about a writer who has succumbed to an obsession: to narrate and relive the life of a dead queen, Christina of Sweden. The Queen relives through the three characters: The Actor, her male alter ego, the Child and the present time Writer that are in reality her different identities in other times and spaces. The Writer is seen through a surveillance camera closed in with his obsessions, constrained to construct a parallel reality and with writing as the only way to escape his madness where the border between reality and fantasy no longer exist. Based on the life of a Swedish writer who ended his days in a psychiatric clinic. His book was never published.
