The daring and secretive Stephanie St. Clair, known as Queenie, rules Harlem thanks to the underground lottery of which she is the mastermind. A lottery that offers hope of a better life to the community of this poor, socially ostracized neighborhood.
Both female and black, Queenie annoys not only the police, but also Dutch Schultz. This white mafioso does everything in his power to take over the Queen of Harlem’s flourishing business.
