When life gets hard, there's nothing like a wo(e)mance.
The actress and the sexpert. There’s childhood…there are the
teenage years…there’s even young adulthood. But what happens in the
great beyond (tertiary life)? When two 30-something old ‘besties’
reunite in rural Indiana, their planned weekend of adventure takes a
sudden turn. The road trip they embark on (in circles) ends up being a
harrowing journey to themselves. Via despair, humor, unsolicited wisdom
(watch out for those wise ladies), an unlikely farmer, and a blushing
boy-ingénu. Have a cup of tea, and get in the car!

About the Production:
"This highly collaborative project grows out
of my interest in what happens to people in familiar and unfamiliar
environments, especially when they reconnect after many years. ROSEHILL
is a film about vulnerability and strength, honesty and deception, and
the deep bond between two women at crossroads in their lives. Drawing on
the dual strengths of our team--our shared roots in documentary
production and our love of intelligent, subtle improvisation--ROSEHILL
will have an elastic, dynamic relationship between camera and subjects.
You haven't seen friendship until you've seen it in the hands of
Josephine Decker and Kate Chamuris!" -- Brigitta Wagner
