Keeping Rosy
Charlotte is a woman who is completely defined by her career. All she wants in life is to be cut a slice of the advertising agency she has devoted herself to building. However, the fragility of her perfect existence is exposed when, after finding out she's been shafted in the boardroom, she returns home where an unfortunate encounter leads to a series of life changing events.
While Charlotte's life disintegrates, we follow her on a heart-racing journey of self-discovery, atonement and danger as she fights for a future that is rosy.
