“A young woman, naked in a field, in the middle of the night. And a young man is there with her. In the past, she has kissed this young man, and he has held her in his arms. Now, she suddenly begins to scream.”
The boundary between consensual intimacy and statutory rape comes under fire as Christine, a young investigator struggling with her own past traumas, attempts to extract the truth from 14-year-old Evelyn. Throughout the interrogation, the fragile balance of power threatens to shatter as both women fight to gain the upper hand in a battle of words and will.
“No one has questioned what you witnessed. Only how you interpreted it.”
