Private Project

Oil and Water

Rose is a loner who attends painting courses at her university. Isolated by her peers and ignored by professors, Rose spends most of her time facing a canvas, realizing works very distant from the taste ruling in her school.
But when two of her course mates, Grace and Kathy, invite her to participate to the university art contest, Rose will have to deal with herself and with her own art.
