When Rose is released from jail, her former corrections officer offers her a place to stay and a job. But it soon becomes clear that the two women have very different plans.

Marie’s lonely world consists of her job at the prison and taking care of her mother. But everything changes when the beautiful Rose is released from jail. Marie wants to help Rose get back on her feet. Rose could live with her and take care of her mother, and, in return, earn a bit of money. Marie announces the plans during dinner.
