This is a story of the heart.

Edmond's heart is no longer strong. However it still beats with an independence which fights against the very idea of entering a retirement home, while at the same time refusing help from Rose, his home carer. Nonetheless she stands up to him. She knows the tumult that a heart undergoes when it is forced to accept the unacceptable. Hers hasn't yet healed from her own personal tragedy.

One day however, a bad fall forces Edmond to accept Rose's support...

In this Little Room, we want to tell a story, the story of two people who have seemingly nothing in common. Edmond is an old man at the end of his life, and Rose a young woman who cannot give life. Each is enclosed in their isolation and solitude, as they both feel useless and lost. Thanks to their bad temperaments, they will find a common path of understanding and unexpected complicity.
We are fascinated by characters who convey life through their imperfect humanity, through their blunders and unintended clashes. This is what happens with Edmond and Rose: despite their mutual suffering, they still deliver a message of hope.
