In a sleepy town where taking the easy path has become the norm, a father, on a whim, makes one small decision that changes everything.

A Rose among Horns is a comedy of games, risks and the archaic notion of Prince Charming in the world where chivalry is dead and even the men want to be rescued. This comedic drama is evocative, abrasive and forgiving. It is about gambling on the prospect of love, when falling for lust and deception are just as alluring.
