It’s been a while since Rose’s mother, Esther could remember much. Her disease has caused her to slip into an unresponsive coma, and Rose sits by her side during what will be the final hours of her life. Knowing that her mother can hear her, she decides to read letters which she found while cleaning out her childhood home. The letters were written by Rose’s father, Joseph, in the month’s leading up to their wedding in 1947. As Rose reads the letters, Joseph and Esther appear reliving their love story, and their daughter discovers the life they lived before they were her parents. Two people who were never going to marry until one day when everything changed. A day that Rose never knew about until her parents decided to tell her through the letters.
