Lady Rose (Vanessa Redgrave) is an elderly woman who has lived in a hospital for over 50 years. Despite her bleak surroundings there is a light in her eyes that cannot be extinguished. Dr. Stephen Grene (Eric Bana) is drawn to her, compelled to discover her past and help gain her freedom.

Through Lady Rose's "scripture", a life of extraordinary love and great injustice emerges, revealing a remarkable young woman of courage, whose only crime was to fall in love.

Set against a backdrop of troubled times locally, and chaos internationally, we learn of her ultimate triumph.

"Beautifully directed and handsomely lensed. Rooney Mara and Theo James deliver their most richly nuanced screen work to date." (The Hollywood Reporter)
