Mark (Carlos Bahos) just had a fight with his girlfriend (Leocricia Sabán), and now he drives home a winding road he knows like the back of his hands - which is why he allows his cellphone to distract him, which is why he doesn't see the little girl, Rose (Natasha Machuca), on her bicycle until way too late, which is why he hits her and ...

One dark night, Mark breaks into the graveyard chapel to pray at Rose's coffin. Apparently, he has somehow come off their accident scot-free while she was less lucky, but now he is overcome by guilt. Eventually, he notices he is not alone, as he sees a shadow of a little girl ... there is just no little girl belonging to the shadow. There's also blood that wasn't there a minute ago.

Mark leaves the chapel in terror, but finds the graveyard around it has turned into a maze, a maze that changes its lay-out consistently. Eventually, he finds Rose sitting in a corner, but dares not come any closer or ever draw attention to himself - when a twig under his feet breaks, which alerts Rose who disappears ... but returns, no longer the sweet girl everyone remembers her to be, but the battered corpse the accident has turned her into. Yet the corpse still walks towards Mark.

Basically, a spooky piece of film, The Sweet Hand of the White Rose relies less on action as such or on plot even but concentrates on atmosphere to bring its little story to life - and in this case it doesn't matter that the narrative as such doesn't hold too many surprises (at least on closer inspection), or that the imagery as such stays firmly within traditional horror mainstays, not even that the PSA-like final message is a bit on the blunt side, the film is just really effective in direction and camerawork to creep you out at least a bit. Fun, actually!
