QUEENS is a brash comedy that follows the friendship of three Asian American Queens natives struggling to make ends meet while realizing being adults is a lot harder than what their immigrant parents taught them it’d be. Best friends, Sarah (Cindy Chu), Kim (Spring Inés Peña) and Gia (Carolina Do) learn that relationship goals and career achievements don’t necessarily equate to success, and experience the complicated intersection of being first and second generation Asian Americans.
