From the producers of Proof, comes a powerful television film written and directed by Aisling Walsh, (Sinners, Fingersmith, Song for a Raggy Boy), set in affluent, contemporary, Southside Dublin.

The Cahills appear to have the world at their feet. Aidan, (Brendan Coyle), is a successful property tycoon, his wife Michelle, (Olivia Williams), a successful estate agent and their fashion model daughter, Emma’s 21st birthday party at the family home should be a night to remember.

That night however, a rape at the party shatters their seemingly perfect lives. With the key suspect released on bail, and dark family secrets coming to the fore, Emma’s life begins to freefall. Slowly, having made radical changes to her life, Emma (Natalie Press) builds towards recovery – until a chance meeting with her rapist bolsters her conviction that she’ll need to confront him in court before she can get on with her life.
