    • Synopsis
    • Thirteen-year old Rosa is a sensitive girl with a vivid imagination. But she is insecure and forced by her mother to live with a new step-father. Finding it difficult to cope within her new surroundings, Rosa creates in her mind Rooz, a brash and overly-confident version of herself. Under Rooz’s influence she begins to exhibit increasingly extreme behaviour.
      When she meets Neuz however, a 16-year old talented graffiti artist, she feels able to finally confront and banish her malign alter ego. And with Neuz, she also yields to her first kiss.
