Rosa Morena

Carlos Oliveira, Denmark, 2011

84 min.DK/Feature

Thomas is in his forties and he is craving to become a father. There are two obstacles, he's a homosexual and current legislation doesn't make it easy for males to adopt. Needing a break, he visits an old friend in Brazil where he discovers an illegal market for adoption. He meets the passionate and whimsical Maria and agrees to adopt her unborn child. But, what was to be a business deal, turns in to a relationship and he now faces a difficult choice. "Rosa Morena" is a story about sorrow, selfishness and suspicion, that touches on globalization and the values of the nuclear family.
