Synopsis: A woman loses her innocence over the course of a traumatic evening - she won't be left feeling powerless.
Theme: In an age when the media sympathizes with "two young men, that had such promising futures, star football players, very good students," are we as a society supposed to take pity on those that stand convicted of rape? What about the victim, where is their justice? This short character study unravels a different take on coming to terms with whats been consequentially taken from you, and seeking out your own form of justice.
