Archaeology student Rebecca Kellawan journeys to uncover the use of a crumbling and abandoned World War II American military complex on the grounds of a beautiful Victorian estate.  While awaiting archival documents, the subject and filmmaker turn to the local population to find answers in memory.  What is uncovered leads to even more intriguing questions of racial segregation and national tensions in the era.  Sub Rosa seeks to reconcile the hard evidence gleaned from archaeological method with the ephemeral nature of human memory.
