She is surrounded by lavish things and lives a luxurious life. She has been separated from anti-Semitism and has only socialized with and lived with other Jewish people. Her life is splendid until the unthinkable happens. Her father is violently killed and she is left with nothing. As a result of her father's untimely death, Rosina is forced to find a job. She finds a job and is hired to become a governess in the gentile Cavendish family's Scottish estate. In order to get the job, Rosina had to pretend and convince Mr. Charles Cavendish (Tom Wilkinson) that she is a Christian.
