This film is about the sexual assault of two preteen girls and the young girl who is the only witness.

This is a look at how one of the preteen girls is treated by family, law enforcement and her legal representation. It is emotionally impactful and I found myself really feeling for this child. Her situation is just sad and her mental state is one of fear, shame and isolation. The situation for the witness is self-serving and I was initially appalled by the unsympathetic emotion of her actions.

This film is well acted and filmed. This was a really slow paced film. I had a few problems with the story and the way it ended. I didn't feel there was enough detail to really make the story strong and I was really missing that. The ending just left me with so many unanswered questions that after building a connection with these girls, I felt let down by not knowing the rest of the story.

My final opinion is that while I liked it, this was a film that could've been so much more than it was.
