In this romantic drama, Lisa (Mary Stuart Masterson), an investment broker, is such a workaholic that she just can't find the time to stop and smell the roses. But that changes after a hopelessly romantic florist named Lewis (Christian Slater) spots Lisa crying by her apartment window. To make Lisa happy, Lewis delivers a bouquet of flowers to her, letting her believe that it's from a secret admirer. But when Lewis eventually admits that he was the sender, the two begin dating. However, Lisa is carrying around some serious emotional baggage from a traumatic childhood. Lisa now must find a way to resolve her problems--before she loses what could be her one true love. BED OF ROSES also stars Josh Brolin and Pamela Segall.
