Malvarosa is the poignant story of a family’s struggles in life. It tells of Rosa who lives in the slums near the railroad tracks, with her mother and five brothers. Her mother wallows in guilt and depression, when her drunkard father is run over by a train. Though she is set to marry her fiancé, Rosa chooses to put her family’s needs before her own. Rosa’s brothers also carry their own burdens, except for one, the youngest, Avelino who helps Rosa shoulder the weight of the family’s problems.
