A short movie about secrecy, vulnerability and roses.

In the Middle Ages a rose suspended from the ceiling of a council chamber pledged all presents (those under the rose) to secrecy. The rose's connotation of secrecy dates back also to Greek mythology. Aphrodite gave a rose to her son Eros, the god of love; he, in turn, gave it to Harpocrates, the god of silence to ensure that his mother's indiscretions (or those of the gods in general, in other accounts) were not disclosed.
