Patrice Toye

The poignant story of a young teenager's power of love for her mother, and the unbreakable bond that links them together.

Rosie is a sensitive and bright 13-year-old, whose longing for her mother's love mirrors the latter's struggle to reconcile the events of her past to the consequences of the present. In an attempt to make sense of the complexity around her, Rosie creates a bright and imaginative world with her one and only friend Jimi. The two worlds mingle, until Rosie's drive to help her mother achieve her happiness leads to a tragic turn of events.
