Synopsis: Rose, an undocumented 17 year old Filipina, dreams of one day leaving her small Texas town to pursue her country music dreams. Her world is shattered when her mom suddenly gets picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Rose, facing this new realty, is forced to flee the scene, leaving behind the only life she knows, and embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she searches for a new home in the honky tonk world of Austin, Texas.
Featuring Tony Award Winner Lea Salonga, Dale Watson, Princess Punzalan, Gustavo Gomez ("The Walking Dead") and starring two-time Tony award nominee Eva Noblezada in a breakout role! The film has already bagged the Grand Jury Award at three prestigious film festivals, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, the Bentonville Film Festival and the CAAMFest37.
