Sarah Tobias goes to her local bar and is gang-raped by three men. The district attorney on the case is Katheryn Murphy who wants to prove that although Sarah had taken drugs that night and was acting provocatively while in the bar, this is no reason for her to be so brutally attacked and the men responsible should be brought to justice.

Jodie Foster hits a home run in her Oscar-winning performance in this outstanding film.
Foster epitomizes the low class girl,coming from a broken home and rapidly going nowhere at all in her totally dysfunctional life.
When she is brutally gang raped at a bar, the onus is put on her. Her miserable life, her dress, her drinking, her use of drugs shall all be used against her in a trial.
She is angered when her attorney settles for a lower plea, but is up to the task when the former realized her mistake and will now prosecute those who provoked the brutal attack by their screaming and encouraging the participants.
The rape scene is self is brutally staged but unfortunately that what was needed here.
This hard-hitting drama reflects a tragic social issue of our times.
