Season of Roses

(Portuguese edition)

“Roses of Rosigny” is the name of the female football team at Rosigny-sur-Seine — a fictional neighbourhood in the suburbs of a large city.
The “Roses” are a united and determined team, with a high goal for the upcoming season: qualifying for the U19, the national female championship.
However, after a major cut to the club’s subsidies, the director decides to remove the “Roses” from their qualification board, and focus only on the male team.
Barbara — the team captain — feels shattered by this injustice and strikes an offensive: she encourages her teammates to finding sponsors and challenges the male team for a match. She believes the final score will make the club change its mind.
But it’s not that simple, and Barbara is going through challenges in many fields: her mother, her studies and — in between the lines — her role in the club, in her city, in the world.
In this process, Barbara learns about herself, about choosing priorities and defending convictions.

The game is on.
