The film portrays the story of Kristina of Sweden, queen from the age of six, who stood against the tradition and convention, and thus inadvertently changed the course of history. The extravagant young woman fights the conservative forces that oppose her ideas of progress, caught between reason and affection, high-quality modern education and the anachronistic world of royal duties – between her brilliant mind and the incomprehensible desires of her body.
