At nearly 90 years of age, Miss Veitch’s mind is still sharp but she is confined to bed and entirely dependent on her day time carer. When increasing ill health sees a new carer brought in to look after her at night, the lives of all three are changed in ways that are as unexpected as they are profound.
Miss Veitch’s Roses explores the fine line between independence and isolation and the gap between the identities we share with others and who we really are.
