Synopsis
Attractive Susy Connor accuses former employer, Gary Fitzgerald, of harassment and unfair dismissal for failing to comply with his sexual demands. Relating the incident to conciliation lawyer, Marion Lee, Susy comments that the trauma experienced should entitle her to a compensation payment of $40,000. Susy's account of a lurid moment with Gary sounds a warning bell for her sister Katy whom she entreats to corroborate her story. A statement which Susy is attributing to Gary was actually made by their father Brian, who, it transpires, molested the sisters during their adolescence. Could Susy's harassment be a fabrication? Their brother Paul is also skeptical. Neither sibling recall Susy being unusually distressed and in view of her natural assertiveness, both feel that she may be stretching the truth. A public hearing ensues...
