Rose

 

 

Passions that cross oceans and transcend time. 1815 . . . a boy – the composer Hector Berlioz – dances with a girl on a summer hill in mystical Meylan. A dance echoing through his life . . . a girl’s image haunting him . . . till at the end he risks sanity and reputation to claim her. 1998 . . . an aging musician in a doomed New York apartment makes a final stand for dignity with a remarkable woman named Rose. Scarred by tragedy but elevated by courage and fierce loyalties, she is now a spectre of herself, her memory fragmented by Alzheimer’s. Two rootless young people come under her spell . . . witnesses to Rose’s final chapter. Oppressed by a desperately jealous woman and a heartless shadow of a man, they discover their destiny . . . to play out their own variation of a story that is age-old and forever young and . . . the story of us all.
