„Rose blooms red” is the old Polish euphemism for menstruation. For ages, women have been using various terminology in order not to speak directly about their physicality.
It is a very important issue: how we talk about our own body. If we feel ashamed at the very sound of particular
words, it becomes difficult to talk about, accept and like your body. It is about  unceasing battle between women and their own bodies. About lack of self-acceptance, an attempt to overcome complexes. On the other hand, it is also about many of pragmatic problems arising from female physicality and all of those situations when female body refuses to cooperate with the female psyche.
I wanted this problem to be noticed, but in contrast to the third wave

of feminism using language that some people find aggressive, the series tries to show this struggle in a more symbolic and poetic way.
