Storyline

Cathy a beautiful and idealistic young schoolteacher, lost her promising career and her freedom for having a sexual relationship with Chris one of her 16 year-old students. After receiving a sympathetic letter from another former student, Eve, Cathy learns that Chris, in an effort to gain the "respect" of his peers, was the one responsible for leaking the evidence that imprisoned her, and that he continues to brag at her expense. After four years of being tortured by her thoughts and by her fellow inmates for being a supposed rapist, Cathy is released from prison, with one last lesson to teach Chris about love and betrayal.
