The first film from Martha Coolidge (VALLEY GIRL, REAL GENIUS) is a formally complex, emotionally harrowing, autobiographical film about the director’s own experiences as the teenage victim of a sexual assault. The structure of the narrative is punctuated by behind-the-scenes and rehearsal footage, which bring added layers of depth to the situation and Coolidge’s (and her actors’) feelings about it.

Digitally restored in 4K from original 16mm elements in 2022 by the Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation. Restoration funding was provided by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation.
