Wild Roses is a story about a woman, who is facing a very tough choice in her life. Her situation is further complicated by the place of her residence: it is a small, provincial town, where is it difficult to hide things, but easy to be judged. The main heroine is struggling with a profound sense of loneliness. Her life is dedicated to looking after the house and two children, combined with constant waiting for her husband, who works in Norway and seldom comes back to Poland. In an effort to feel loved and adored once again, the young woman starts a love affair with a teenager. Alas, that “moment of oblivion” comes at a high price. The situation gets further complicated after the return of her husband. Suspicions, gossip, and accusations are intertwined with yet a different tragedy, when Jasio, her two-year-old son goes missing at a wild rose plantation, where the woman works. Will the boy be found? Will the family survive this?
