Cri de Coeur


When the café-owner from Chez Nous has financial problems, six ordinary regular customers organize a squat and steal a valuable necklace from a heavily guarded museum.

Queen of Amsterdam tells the story of 'gay friendly' pub 'Chez Nous' which, threatened by bankruptcy, might be sold to a powerful nightlife proprietor. To prevent this sale, the regular customers plan to commit a heist during the Amsterdam Gay Pride. They want to steal a diamond necklace from the Amstel Museum and hope to save their favorite hangout this way. Will they succeed?
