Rosa wants to write plays. But she has two daughters who are approaching puberty and an environmentalist and anthropologist husband who doesn’t earn much money. Rosa is a good mother and wife, who has to work a job that she doesn’t love to help support her family. Just like many women around the world, Rosa is expected to be a good mother, daughter, wife as well as an independent career woman. Stuck in her own life, Rosa’s world will shatter with her mother Clarice’s confession: The man she thought was her father, is not really her father. Clarice’s strong and loving look on life, her womanhood and the way she views her mother as well as her entire life will change completely.
