ROSE is inspired by the writer/director’s own family. It follows two sisters Inger and Ellen and how their relationship is challenged on an anticipated coach trip to Paris. Inger suffers from schizophrenia and Ellen is always there for her. When Inger announces her struggles with mental health to the coach tour group, the sisters are faced with pity from some and discrimination from others. On arrival in Paris, it soon becomes clear that Inger has a hidden agenda concerning a figure from her past, ultimately involving the entire group in her hunt for answers. ROSE is a film about love and care for each other, in spite of our differences, as much as it is a film about not judging a book by its cover.
