Overview

An act of violence throws a young woman's life into disarray in this independent drama, the first feature from director Talia Lugacy. Maya Rosario Dawson is a bright and ambitious college student who tries to balance a social life with her busy academic schedule. One night, Maya and some friends attend a house party largely populated by drunken frat boys. Maya is appalled by their uncouth behavior and disrespect for the female guests, and when a guy named Jared Chad Faust bluntly hits on her, she gives him a piece of her mind. While she begins to warm to him by the end of their conversation, Jared shows just how much he thinks of her opinions by brutally raping her later that night. The assault has a profound effect on Maya; her grades suffer, she turns to drugs to blunt her emotional pain, and falls into a cycle of promiscuity. Maya has come close to hitting bottom when she encounters Jared and confronts him about the toll he's taken on her life. Leading lady Rosario Dawson also served as producer for Descent, which received its premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

          Harsh but very likely true to life depiction of a  vicious

          Harsh but very likely true to life depiction of a  vicious cycle of events leading to despair, depravity, and  revenge in retaliation for rape.
     A rape for a rape of a rapist by a rapist.  Who likely was much raped and violated in his own youth.  This was not a pleasant film for me
     to view but it does receive my highest ratings and kudos to Rosario Dawson as producer and actress and Writer/Director Talia Lugacy.
     In fact my heartiest and heartfelt congratulations to all involved in the production and distribution of this 2008 important uncomfortable
     film of  truth telling in fiction.
