Rose is the story of a sixteen-year-old pregnant Indigenous girl, pulled from her community and placed in a church to be overseen in her last weeks of pregnancy. When she delivers her child, it will be taken from her and put into a Canadian home by decree of an Indian Agent, Angus O’Byrne. Rose harbours a secret, and will not tell anyone the identity of the baby’s father—not even her family. It is later revealed that the father of her child is a young Mohawk man named Michael who wants to keep the child in the community.
