We Call Her Rose (2023)

Ethan is clever, knowledgable and fiercely independent; qualities that serve him well living under an oppressive regime. But after he meets Rose - the beautiful figurehead of the Utopian Guard - he decides to fight for love while fighting for his freedom.

As Rose, Ethan and the Utopian Guard work to save their people from the tyrannical rule of the Autocracy, Ethan realizes there's more to happily-ever-after than the history books taught him. If he wants to keep the heart of Rose, he has to give up knowing the truth - for Rose's true identity has to remain a secret if the Guard is going to be successful.*
