In this feature drama set on an American college campus, a Freshman Girl wakes up after a drunken campus party and discovers she may have been sexually assaulted. She remembers nothing. As she searches for the truth, everyone tells her a different story…
What makes this film different is our approach to the material. This isn’t a doc. It’s a narrative film with characters that students can relate to, and that employs all the classic tropes –a detective story, a courtroom drama, a romance. In other words, it’s an entertaining movie. We’re also going to play out all the possible scenarios when the Boy and the Girl leave the party and go down that long hall and into that dark room. And we’re not going to tell you who dunnit – or how. Because we want to provoke discussion and shed light on this pervasive problem.
We’ve partnered with Trinity College and will shoot on their beautiful campus in the summer of 2018. We’re seeking donations in our production, budgeted at $250K. While there are never guarantees, this budget level will allow us to recoup by releasing on a streaming platform and then begin to be profitable.
