Turquoise Rose” is a coming of age story about a Navajo girl from Arizona. Raised in the suburbs of Phoenix, “T” attends college and is interning as a photojournalist at the local paper. She even plans to vacation in Europe for the summer with her roommate, but all that changes in a heartbeat when her grandmother falls sick.Turquoise is asked to care for her ailing grandma, and suddenly Turquoise must choose between Rome and the Reservation. A “Rez” summer seems dreadful to the Urban Native, who is ready to discover the world behind the lens of her camera. The road ahead seems so completely out of focus, but either way, the journey ahead is sure to be an adventure she will never forget.
