A family is like a constellation of stars, says eight-year-old Rose. Even if some stars went out millions of years ago, and some are millions of light years apart, they are all connected somehow. On a sun-drenched summer day, Rose sets out to visit her sick mother. Could the family constellation grow a little close, perhaps?
