Margaux Hemingway makes her film debut as a high fashion model who is violated as much by "the system" as she is by her rapist.

As Margaux's lawyer, Anne Bancroft (The Slender Thread, The Miracle Worker) gives a brilliant, uncompromising portrayal of a woman who takes on the legal system in an attempt to define the rights of women in this complex and controversial issue.
