Synopsis
Charlotte is a popular girl on campus whose boyfriend Wesley belongs to a notorious fraternity--one with a reputation for hedonistic partying and a sexual bravado that has earned them an unparalleled record when it comes to scoring with the prettiest girls. When Allison attends a wild fraternity party while Wesley is out of town, she finds herself drinking and dancing with his fraternity brother, Jim. Queasy after too many beers, Charlotte retires to Wesley's room and soon Jim joins her, forcing her into an unwanted sexual encounter. The incident changes Charlotte's life. She feels ashamed, blaming herself, and when she finally finds the courage to speak out--aided by an on-campus feminist group--she is ignored, disbelieved and ostracized by her former friends. The ensuing experience ends up challenging the trust and friendship of a group that thought they would be friends forever.
