Based on true events, this is a riveting journey through a young woman’s traumatic encounter with sexual violence during a college spring break trip – and an aftermath of remarkable coincidences that spiral out of control for the next three decades. Elizabeth, a small-town southern girl, desperately tries to move on and leave the harrowing past behind. However, her aggressors, four devious well-connected Ivy Leaguers in positions of international power and influence, keep reappearing in her life – causing the danger to escalate into adulthood. Past and present merge. God intervenes. Worlds collide, culminating in a flood of vivid memories and an unexpected ending to Elizabeth’s decades-long nightmare.
