Our Rose Garden

Our Rose Garden


This film is the story of two couples: one struggling against infidelity and the other fighting mental illness. At the end, a surprising connection will make you rethink both stories showing that true love is more than a feeling: it’s a choice that requires heroic forgiveness and fidelity which only comes from God.

Dove Review

Love fails—never. That is the theme of this short but powerful film.The movie deals with very relevant issues, such as a husband’s love for his wife who is battling mental illness. We also see a younger couple and a character named Mark (Richie Marin) who has an affair, which crushes his wife Gabby (Bethany Carol) emotionally. He immediately regrets it and begs her forgiveness.

There is a connection with both stories that is not revealed until the conclusion of the movie but it is both powerful and poignant. The theme focuses on the need to forgive, as God has forgiven us. Due to the affair and some heart-wrenching moments, we are awarding the film our Dove-Approved for Ages 12+ Seal. The acting is solid in the film, too.

The Dove Take

The movie contains a clear statement that forgiveness is a necessity of life and certainly comes from God as its source.
