Directors Note: It has been reported that one in four women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime, including rape, molestation, coercion, and date rape. This story depicts the series of unfortunate events that lead to an all too common scenario about a girl, a boy, and the word "no".
The #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns have taken hold of society in what can only be described as this generation's women's lib movement. It's these powerful stories of survival and strength that inspired the screenplay and are reshaping our world.
*****We understand that rape-revenge films are difficult to watch for a lot of survivors which is why we have decided not to include any graphic rape scenes throughout (but don't worry, there is tons of graphic gore).
Colton David Coate is an award-winning, gay screenwriter and director. He has been honored with "Best Unproduced Screenplay" as well as "Best Feature Film" awards in festivals in North and South America in 2018 for his feature film Miserable Marnie & The Shut In as well as an unproduced screenplay, Witches Bitches. He has two sisters and a ton of [platonic] girlfriends, all of whom have dealt with some sort of sexual misconduct in their lives which is why this project is so meaningful to him.
"Date-rape is very real and very horrific. I think now is the perfect time to embody that horror into a film that can hopefully draw attention and comment on the casual atrocities we commit and ignore as a society with regards to sexual assault."
