Rosa and Bruno are in their early eighties and newly in love. Against all odds and despite Rosa’s struggle with cancer, they’re determined to bask one last time in the glory of love and all that comes with it. They live a type of love that has no place in society, standing together in joy, illness and old age. An inspiring story of the right to personal happiness, unbound by time.
