30 year old Ali has the heart of a lioness, is proud, doesn't complain and works herself to the bone for her two children, as a cleaner in Hamburg's famous nightclub “Ritze”.
But deep in her heart Ali carries a wound: after she became an unmarried mother in Romania she was disowned by her father - for whom, until then, she was the Gypsy Queen, the queen of all Roma.
When Ali discovers the boxing ring in the Ritze's basement one day and gets to watch a fight, it brings back memories of boxing training with her father. Fully equipped and disappointed by life, Ali vents all her fury on the punching bag one evening. Tanne, ex-boxer and owner of the Ritze sees her and recognizes her talent. She starts to box again and sees the chance for a better life.
While boasting an extremely physical acting debut by Alina Serban, Gipsy Queen sets Hamburg as another main protagonist, the proud cradle of german boxing. The settings are among the most renowned of the boxing subculture.
Starring opposite Serban we see one of the most renowned actors in german language, Tobias Moretti, who surprises as Tanne, a man worn down by body blows and lifestyle - and rising up once more for Ali. Director Hüseyin Tabak („Your Beauty Is Worth Nothing“) returns with a powerful drama delivering its emotions with a grand variety of punches.
