Fresh out of prison, Rose-Lynn juggles her job and two children while pursuing her dream of becoming a country music star. She soon gets her chance when she travels to Nashville, Tennessee on a life-changing journey to discover her true voice.

“A sweet, stirring, and yet refreshingly unsentimental tale of a singer with ambition (and pipes to match), the movie Wild Rose is like the anti-A Star Is Born. Set in Glasgow, Scotland, and centering on a young single mother and ex-con who dreams of moving to Nashville to become a country singer, this small, glitz-free drama is a bracing counterpoint to that Oscar winner…. Wild Rose serves up some of the same ingredients — or at least seems to, at first — but uses a very different recipe.” – Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post
