'Dear Queen Maxima.' Thus starts the letter of Queen, a 10-year-old girl that is close to becoming homeless and having to live on the streets together with her Nigerian mother. Queen is an 'illegal alien' in The Netherlands. They are extremely poor by Dutch poverty standards and often have nothing to eat. She writes a letter to our 'alien' queen Maxima (who was born in Argentina): where will she stay over at Christmas and New Year's eve? (IKON, 2013)
