Vika, who is 84, is one of the eldest DJs in the world. Because of her attitude, she is far from any stereotypes about senior citizens. Adored and surrounded by a young audience, she prooves that age is just a number. Her life is filled with music, dance and unconstrained joy, but there is a dark side of this story. To fulfil her dreams, Vika made decisions that left a mark on her relationship with her own family. The most recent film by Agnieszka Zwiefka is a bittersweet documentary musical about consistence in following your own path and fighting for your dreams.

It was in "Queen of Silence" that we saw a combination of an obsevational documentary and a musical for the first time. This original film language became the basis for creating the story about DJ Vika. Currently, Agnieszka is working on another documentary, "Runa", about a young girl-refugee, and on her fiction debut.
