Farneback optical flow in box/ROI

I'm detecting the optical flow by the Farneback method, but I need to delimit the area of the video that will be detected. I researched ROI, but I did not succeed. Any suggestions on how I can with the mouse create a box and the algorithm only run in that region?

        "\nThis program demonstrates dense optical flow algorithm by Gunnar Farneback\n"
        "Mainly the function: calcOpticalFlowFarneback()\n"
        "This reads from video camera 0\n" << endl;
static void drawOptFlowMap(const Mat& flow, Mat& cflowmap, int step,
    double, const Scalar& color)
    for (int y = 0; y < cflowmap.rows; y += step)
        for (int x = 0; x < cflowmap.cols; x += step)
            const Point2f& fxy =<Point2f>(y, x)*5;
            line(cflowmap, Point(x, y), Point(cvRound(x + fxy.x), cvRound(y + fxy.y)),
            circle(cflowmap, Point(x, y), 2, color, -1);
