Rosie Ming is a 20-year-old poet who lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents. When she’s invited to perform at a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, her grandparents are worried—Rosie has never traveled anywhere alone. Once in Iran, Rosie meets international poets and Persians, and uncovers a secret about her Persian father’s disappearance. Rosie embarks on an unwitting journey of forgiveness, reconciliation, and understanding as she learns about her father’s past and her own cultural identity.
Blended with poetry and stories, this debut feature-length animated film by multi award-winning Canadian Spotlight Artist Ann Marie Fleming is a touching voyage of discovery, curiosity, imagination, and bridge-building across cultural and generational divides.
