Rose’s mother has Huntington’s Disease. There is no cure and her mom will die. Rose has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene mutation. Rose watches her mother deteriorate and become somebody she doesn’t know anymore. A genetic test can tell Rose if she has the gene and what her chances of developing the disease are. Rose is torn with indecision to take the test. She questions how she will live her life knowing the possible results.
