Official Trailer

A film about a family of misfits, Rosie tells the story of a young, orphaned, Indigenous girl who is forced to live with her reluctant, street-smart Aunty Frédérique. “Aunty Fred”, an artist who creates art from found and discarded objects or other people’s trash, introduces Rosie to her two best friends Flo and Mo - glamorous, gender-bending street workers. Set in 1980s Montréal, the movie was filmed largely in the back alleys and empty streets of Hamilton, Ontario. Weaving between the languages of English, French and Cree, the colourful characters each face challenges but ultimately find love, acceptance, and a sense of home amongst their chosen family.
