Siblings take flowers to a grave in the deep snow. Their father directs them. Their mother is dead–how will they fill the void she left behind? Each family member tries to find their way and must redefine their course. “There are times, when all the world’s asleep, the questions run too deep for such a simple man, won’t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned, I know it sounds absurd, but please tell me who I am” -Suptertramp. AS ROSAS BRANCAS has enjoyed success on the festival circuit, including screenings at Berlinale and IndieLisboa.
