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Evie’s mother is worried that something has happened to Evie who has become nervy and withdrawn.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.
