Jozef, a man in his 50s, has moved from Poland to Nantes in France to work. But the job isn't the only reason he's here: he's looking for his son Roman, whom he left here 15 years previously. Jozef asks Rose, the teenage daughter of his employer, who goes to the same school as Roman, for help. She should give the boy a letter. But outsider Rose falls head over heels for Roman and uses the information Josef gives her for her own purposes. A gruelling triangular story unfolds. Raging Rose is a dense, psychological coming-of-age film, marked by excellent performances from the lead actors.
