“I was always pretending to be somebody else …” – Mia Rose/Marilyn Monroe
Mia Rose’s world is chaos. She dreams of Marilyn and men – fantasy and reality are converging, memories of childhood erupting, as Mia Rose grapples with a complex insight into her womanhood and her multiple selves. In between love, sex, and violence, is redemption really possible? Where can she find a female role model? Where is love?
