Rosemary's Way is an inspirational film about what a difference one determined person can make. Charismatic changemaker, Rosemary Kariuki, is on a mission to empower immigrant women, exposing them to new ideas, experiences and wider Australian society - her means are anything but orthodox and laughter is her secret weapon.

Rosemary’s Way celebrates the remarkable Rosemary Kariuki and a group of vulnerable immigrant women in suburban Sydney whose lives she helps transform from isolation to connection. The film follows Rosemary over the course of a year, as she reaches out to isolated migrant women from cultures as diverse as Iraq, the Congo and Peru. While Rosemary acts as an ebullient facilitator, the film's key characters are the immigrant women with whom she is involved, and the Aussie women who agree to host them in their communities. The film follows these women and shows how they gradually transform as Rosemary introduces them to Australian culture, takes them on adventures, familiarizes them with the bush, and tries to give them confidence in their place in their new home country.
