In the documentary Mama, we delve into the lives of a Dutch drag queen family, who find in each other the support and security they missed at home. At the head of the family are mother and drag queen Ma'MaQueen. Together with her three cats, she forms a safe haven for
her six drag children.

Not everyone in the household can count on understanding from their biological family and they all struggle with personal problems; Being rejected by their family, having a negative self-image, or not feeling seen. The turbulent search for identity and acceptance within a society that screams that you do not belong is not all sunshine and roses. Drag makes them forget all of this and, for a brief moment, the shortcomings in their daily lives vanish into thin air. The sometimes harsh reality and fantasy overlap on a daily basis, but under the wings of Mama, they feel safe and seen. In each other, they find support, security, and a home in which fantasy becomes reality. Above all else, they want to celebrate each other. At the head of the family are mother and drag queen Ma'MaQueen. Together with her three cats, she forms a safe haven for her six drag children.
