Storyline

Arrested at the house of the man who raped her, twenty-year old Aspen Foster returns from rehab weeks later to her ex-boyfriend Ben only to find things have changed. Without a home or job she enrolls in a paid women's fertility study where the lead physician, Dr. Satterfield discovers Aspen's hospitalization and PTSD. Caught in the party-culture underbelly of Newport Beach, Aspen returns to her promiscuous and out of control behavior, and the symptoms of her disorder reach a boiling point. With the Doctor's help and a chance for a healthy relationship with the soft-spoken Drew, Aspen starts to take control until the past returns again and she is left with only one choice: retribution.
