Glamour, treachery, dancing and fab outfits; Queens! Destiny of Dance is set in a palace owned by head transvestite Ammu, played by Seema Biswas (of Bandit Queen fame). Ammu is a mother figure to a gaggle of gorgeous transvestites. The pecking order in the palace is nicely settled, led by Ammu’s favourite Mukta that is until new ‘girl’ Nandini arrives. She is not only more beautiful and younger than Mukta, but also a better dancer. Ammu immediately switches her affections to Nandini and ageing Mukta is out in the cold. When Nandini suddenly disappears all hell breaks out and Mukta stands accused.
