After spending a year in prison for attempted drug smuggling, Rose (Jessie Buckley, 'Chernobyl', 'Fargo') returns to a working-class suburb of Glasgow, where her no-nonsense mother Marion (Julie Walters, 'Billu Elliot', 'National Treasure') has been caring for Rose's young children throughout her sentence. Rose is an ardent fan of country music and believes that she belongs onstage in Nashville. Marion, however, rebukes her for sacrificing the stability of her children for her dream and encourages Rose to get a local job and build a life for her kids. Rose gets a job working at the home of the wealthy Susannah (Sophie Okonedo, 'Hotel Rwanda', 'Wanderlust'), who shares Rose's love of country music. As Susannah offers her more support and encouragement, however, Rose begins to fear her criminal past coming to light as she struggles between staying home for her children and going to Nashville to chase the opportunities she has always longed for. 'Wild Rose' is directed by Tom Harper ('The Aeronauts', 'War & Peace', 'Peaky Blinders') and is written by Nicole Taylor ('Three Girls', 'The Nest', 'The C Word'). Jamie Sives ('Guilt', 'The Victim') and James Harkness ('Rogue One: A Star Wars Story', 'Darkest Hour') also star in this musical drama about dreams and second chances.
