Unaware of what his mother has done and still scarred by a childhood spent with an abusive father, Thomas is unable to give her the comfort that she needs. When the police start suspecting Rose, Thomas is conflicted and asks his mother to leave. Alone and with no place to go, Rose finds herself on the run from the law.
