Trainee police officer Toni Stroud (Loughlin) has just gotten her first report card from her superiors; straight A's. But a fellow officer has something else in mind, and asks to stay at her home after his wife kicks him out. Thinking nothing of it, she allows him to sleep on her couch after a night shift. But while she's asleep in her room, he sneaks in & violently rapes her. When the colleague-turned-rapist is accused of rape by someone else, she goes to her superiors about it. Instead of taking action against the rapist, they retaliate by firing her, and then close ranks around the rapist. Meanwhile Toni is subjected to relentless bullying from people she once called friends, and her home & parents' business are subjected to vandalism. She has the rapist charged and files a lawsuit against her former bosses for illegal termination. Will she prevail...or will the rapist escape his punishment after being shielded by the department?

A great performance by Lori Loughlin, It was good to see her portray a different style then Rebecca on full house. With Loughlin and Martin Sheen as the only recognizable faces in this movie, You tend to forget your watching a movie and not a E true Hollywood story.
This movie actually brought out hatred towards her fellow officers and hit a spark that will leave you angry and bothered.
I saw this on TV around 2:00 in the morning, I found myself wanting to smash my TV due to the treatment to this woman. The worst part is that it's true, All these horrible crimes took place on this poor woman.
I give Loughlin much credit for taking on a role that stems from reality and is such a painful experience.
Now by no means am I saying this is the best movie ever, but it definitely deserves a viewing.
Good performances and a gritty story makes it worth the watch.
