Episode 2

By Shelagh Stephenson

Naively, Maddie hopes for the quick conviction of her attacker.

One Friday night Madeleine leaves the pub and walks home along the seafront in the company of Danny, a boy of her own age, whom she's known for few months, through other friends. On the way and seemingly out of the blue, he jumps on her. At first she thinks it's a bad joke, but in fact he rapes her. We know it happens, because we're with her at the time.

It sets in motion a whole chain of events which question our attitudes towards rape, sexuality and sexual assault.
