The Filipino-led immigration drama "Yellow Rose" is finally opening in select cinemas in the United States on October 9.

"Yellow Rose" tells the story about a Filipina teen from a small Texas town who fights to pursue her dreams as a country music performer while facing the threat of deportation. 

The movie was written and directed by Filipino-American Diane Paragas and co-produced by ABS-CBN’s Cinematografo.
