The Subject Was Roses By Frank Gilroy
Directed by Michael Mastro

There are three sides to every story. Buried truths and old emotional wounds resurface when a young soldier returns to his parents' home after World War II. Caught in the crossfire of unresolved tensions over money, love and heroism, the new veteran finds himself engaged in a battle on the home front—where all three family members ache for a peaceful detente.

A stunning, beautifully written Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about the relationships between a husband and wife and their young adult son.
