Through Lilly’s eyes, the world is a dark but beautiful place, where she and her sister, Rosalyn, live happily in the heart of an enchanted forest. In reality, each day is a battle for Rosalyn, who has been forced to take up prostitution in order to provide for herself and her delusional sister and simply pay the rent for their inner-city, tenement apartment.
An odd twist of fate brings an unlikely ally into their lives, in the form of a local drug addict. Together, they form a plot against a vicious crime boss; a plan that will either lead to their salvation or their doom.
Based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Snow-White and Rose-Red,” Rose White pits dark reality against an even darker fantasy, in a world where there are no happy endings.
