Two Queens

A film by Shahriar Adham El Kosht & Javier Asencio

A man plays a mysterious deck of cards, while two women find and open an envelope. The first woman finds her envelope while playing the piano, and its contents seem to make her very emotional. The second woman finds the envelope in her purse as she walks down the street. Is there a connection between these three characters?
