About Barracuda Queens
It’s 1995. The beginning of the electrifying “girl power” era. Lollo, Klara, Frida, and Mia are four privileged girls from Djursholm, who call themselves the “Barracuda Queens” from their days partying on Barracuda Beach. In a moment of desperation, when hit with a huge party bill, the girls hatch a reckless plan to rob their new neighbor Amina’s house. Things don’t exactly go as planned, but luckily Amina is more interested in joining the gang than pressing charges. Together, the girls become involved in an escalating campaign of house burglaries targeting their obnoxious rich neighbors. By day they are high-achieving students and daughters but by night, they are ruthless thieves – seeking thrills, liberation, and revenge on men that have done them wrong. And no one will ever suspect them… right?
