Blue Rose is a documentary essay that takes us on a compelling journey: from an international flower auction in the Netherlands, through crazy scientific experiments in Japan and pagan festivities in a remote Spanish village, to the nostalgic Soviet archives of a family garden. Blue Rose reminds us that the ephemeral nature of flowers is deceptive, and a closer look at them can offer us an important lesson about the world we live in.
