The victim isn't the rape victim, but the accused rapist.
I wonder if I would remember this one without Brel making his screen debut. A teenager wants to explain an affair with her boyfriend by accusing her teacher of abusing her. Teacher's life is upset in small town but teenage girl reveals truth in court. On one hand, harm was done to innocent teacher and on the other hand, rape victims are since suspect of lying. Both ways harm was done. Problem ain't obviously solved.
