Following two very successful stage productions entitled 65 roses, the project continued development and was re-imagined, paving the way for roses in winter - The Short Film, which was filmed in 2010. The film, featuring actor Ray Lonnen as the Narrator, has picked up an award from the States and opened a couple of UK Film Festivals. Not bad for our first short film, don't you think? Roses in Winter continues to be developed for potential future projects.
Jack, Aaron, Sarah and Billy share a fatal illness, Jack’s childhood sweetheart Chloe does not. A pact bound by children’s hands begins a fight between hope, love, life and death, knotting together the hearts and souls of these life long friends.
What was once an innocent childhood promise becomes a violent adulthood tragedy, as Jack is compelled to choose between Chloe and Aaron, life and death.
In 1979, following the sudden and unexpected death of Sarah, Aaron, devastated by the loss of his closest companion, initiates a pact with Jack and Billy. Ten years pass, their illness takes hold and emotions burn with unbearable intensity as another friend is lost - a promise has been broken. Aaron is filled with inconsolable despair causing climactic devastation and tragedy.
A group of friends that once existed; gone, lost.
