Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Perennial second lead Lisa Eichhorn is afforded a starring role in the independently produced Wildrose. Shedding her abusive husband, Eicchorn starts life anew by taking a job as a heavy-machinery operator in an otherwise all-male Minnesota iron mine. Relentless harrassed by her sexist coworkers, Eichhorn finds a friend in strip-miner Tom Bower. Their casual relationship develops into romance, while Eichhorn questions the wisdom of entering into another love affair so quickly after her disastrous marriage. Wildrose was magnificently photographed on location in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
