Rosie tells the story of a mother trying to protect her family after her landlord sells their rented home and they become homeless. Finding a room, even for a night, is a tough job and finding somewhere permanent to live is even harder. Over 36 hours, Rosie (Sarah Greene) and her partner John Paul (Moe Dunford) strive to maintain a loving family unit while shielding their young family from the reality of the situation. ROSIE examines how, even in times of crisis, the love and strength of a family can endure.
