Rose hardly ever lies. She has a natural elegance and sincerity that few 20-year-olds possess. Hardly anyone knows her carefully hidden past even though she remains haunted by her father’s violence. Rose lives in Montreal with her boyfriend Nathan. One day, Rose, who hasn’t seen her family for two years, decides to visit her mother and her teenage brother Felix in their suburban home. Little has changed. Rose worries for them and decides to confront her father. With the help of two boys, she sequesters him in a specially rented apartment and tries to change him. Rose’s willpower confronts her father’s resistance to change. In the end, it’s Rose who changes and, little by little, becomes head of the family.
