Rowena the Wonderful

A real-life magician's assistant, Rowena is eleven years old.

She can't speak but she wants a voice, so that she can tell her extraordinary story of growing up, celebrity and love.

A unique drama-documentary to reflect the life of unique girl by award-winning writer Helen Cross ('My Summer of Love'). Dominique Moore stars in this uplifting, unusual and moving story.

Rowena was born with a rare chromosome disorder which means she can't speak. But she can understand the language of looks and the power of stories, of music and the love of her family.

She can do magic, and she will make herself heard.
