It is the spring of 2000 and life in the New Orleans Desire Housing Projects isn’t easy for Clarice. The dead-end job, the drive-by shootings, and the constant struggle to pay the rent have all taken their toll and Clarice wants to get out. With very little options, Clarice enlists in the U.S. Navy despite her mother’s objections. But will life in the military be any safer than life in the projects? A challenging and timely drama, La'Chris Jordan's ROSES IN THE WATER
touches on the tough choices we’re sometimes forced to make.
