Are We Good Parents?

Description

When Lauren and Bill's 14-year-old daughter says she's going to her first dance with her classmate Ryan, they welcome the news with excitement...and hesitation. Lauren and Bill always assumed their daughter was gay, in the same way that most parents assume their child is straight (until given notice). Suddenly, they worry they have not provided an open environment that allows their daughter to be herself. Lauren and Bill do some introspection on their own parenting and ask, "Are we good parents?"

What happened to Evie

Description

Evie’s mother is worried that something has happened to Evie who has become nervy and withdrawn. When questioned by her kindly school teacher though, Evie convinces him that everything is fine. But her assertions are unfounded when we become voyeurs into Evie’s recall. From the moment four youths rush at her in a dark underpass, we witness through a series of clipped images the sexual assault - and finally, the gang scarpering - leaving Evie bloodied and damaged. But have we been deceived? When revisiting the scene from an alternative perspective we witness a very different reality.
