Storyline

Illegal Rose is a short film about an unlikely friendship between Rose, a tired, disengaged, almost retired nurse's aide who accidentally kidnaps Sylvie, a 7 year-old ICE Detention Center runaway on the 4th of July. Inspired by Langston Hughes's short story, "Thank you, ma'am," Illegal Rose explores respect, decency and kindness through the eyes of two people of different generations, ages, races and legal status, as they navigate their choices and the consequences. The story reminds us that we are all human and no human being is illegal.
