Meet Paulina, a beautiful, self-assured African teen who has her mind set on becoming the next Miss Global
Universe. The reigning “Queen Bee” at Ghana’s most sought after boarding school thought she’d slay her
opponents until Ericka, a new student arriving from the US, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter.
Mayhem ensues in this biting comedy that explores cultural biases facing teenage girls across the globe.
Suggested audience: Age 8 and above.
