THE QUEEN OF SHEBA’S PEARLS
Set in the heady post-war England of the Fifties, the film tells the story of young Jack following the inexplicable death of his beloved mother Emily on his 8th birthday. On the same day in 1952, Jack reaches his 16th year, the King dies, and as he celebrates his birthday surrounded by his extended family, a stranger appears at the door – a very beautiful, mysterious Swedish stranger whose appearance bears a startling resemblance to his dead mother and whose presence would turn Jack’s world upside down (and that of his family), repeatedly raising the question ‘is there life after death’?
THE QUEEN OF SHEBA’S PEARLS is set in England at a time when the empire still stumbled on, and the Sixties had yet to begin.
