What is the Synopsis?

The family De La Rosa is invited to a vacation home in Spain by their criminal step grandfather, as a birthday present for his daughter, Maliah. Maliah doubts whether to accept the offer, because she isn't sure of her stepdads intentions. And it's been a while since they have visited their home country, after moving to London. Finally, although she fears she will find the worst, she accepts the invitation, because she believes that it is a great opportunity for the family, to reconnect and unite again..

More than a Rose, a color:

The holiday that the De La Rosa family is spending together, takes a dark turn. They are placed in a criminal setup by accident. As a result, you start to notice how each of the family members starts to show their true colors.

Some of the family members want to stay far away from the criminal activity, others seem intrigued by it...
