“The London Rose” tells the story of Edward, a transgender man.

It’s 1895 and Edward Kingsley returns to London after escaping his former life as “Emily”. He builds his new life with help from the quick-thinking Lee, the sardonic Rosanna Winchester, and the tortured, closeted John Collins. When Oscar Wilde’s conviction for homosexuality turns life upside-down in Londontown, Edward must fight for the safety of his loved ones and for his own human dignity.
