Synopsis: An intended rape victim manages to escape from her attacker but leaves her purse behind. Worried that he may visit her house and finish what he has started, she contacts the police but they are unable to help, saying that she has no proof. "If he calls, let us know and we'll send a man round!" A fat load of good that would be. Her worst fears are realised when, alone one day in the house, her attacker visits and attempts again to rape her. Circumstances allow her not only to resist the attack but to turn the tables and lock him away. And that is where her dilemma really starts. Does she release him and risk another attack? Does she go to the police and risk being called a liar? Or does she kill him - and become as low as him?

- Good night.

- See you tomorrow.

- I won't be back for a couple of days.

- Take care.

# There's a time when the light

inside of us feels the night

# And we run and there's no place to hide

# There's a time

when we have to stand alone

# With our eyes on a world

that they never have known

# Where can you run to

# But somewhere inside your heart?

# What can you hold to

# But all that you were from the start?

# There's a time

when no one's really there

# There's a time

when you stand up in all that you are

# Stand up to the night

# Though it's coming down on you

# You're the only one you have

that you can hold on to

# Stand up to the night

# Though you cry and no one hears

# If you fill your soul with light

the darkness disappears

# Stand up to the night

# There's a time and a place in your life

# When you realise

that the stranger will always be there

# There's a cold

in the heart of the world, you know

# No one cares

if the night comes to take you below

# Don't let go

# Don't let go

# Stand up to the night

- Just a cone?

- I'm sorry. We're closed.

Scream and you die. Understand?

Huh? Huh?

Put your hands up on the wheel.

Put your hands up on the wheel!


Sit still.

Start the car.

Back up.

Slow. Slow.

That's it.

Let's go.

That's it.

That's it.

All right. Turn left at the light.

Now go right.

Please don't hurt me.

If you do what I say...

then you don't get hurt.

Don't move.

Keep your head down.

Unzip my pants.

Unzip them.

Touch me. Touch me.

I want you to see my face.

Stop! Stop!

Please! Please stop!

Somebody's chasing me.

Please, it's an emergency.


Can you call me back?

Why not?

- The speed limit on that street is 35.

- Is he all right?

- He's drunk, ma'am.

- My son isn't like that.

His Breathalyzer test is like that.

- When can we see him?

- I'd say in about an hour.

- Can you recommend a good lawyer?

- Melvin Belli. Can I help you?

Yes. Um...

I was attacked by a man.

He tried to rape me.

- Do you wanna see a female officer?

- Yes, please.

"On the above date and time, the VR... "

What's VR?

Victim reporting.

".. upon returning to her car was accosted

by above-described suspect in a ski mask,

who then produced a knife

and stated that he would cut her

if she did not drive away from the mall. "

"The VR complied

as the suspect was adamant,

at which location suspect then asked the

VR to touch him about the sexual organs. "

- "The VR complied. "

- No, I didn't.

- But that's what you just told me.

- No.

I told you he put the knife to my throat

and I did what he said to do.

I don't like your wording.

Can't find her file. You ever been

picked up for prostitution before?

- Fred.

- What?

Wrong woman. Over there.

I'm sorry.

Look, Marjorie, it's a form.

It's how we have to write it.

It's just the facts.

Joanne, they found her car in the mall.


Well, they'll tow it and dust it,

but without a description,

even if we do get prints,

it still comes down to your word

against his and that means he gets off.

What do you mean he gets off?

I'm sorry. I'm just telling you straight.

He has my wallet.

He knows where I live.

Can you give me some protection?

You call and we'll be there.


You didn't sign it.

We can't take action if you didn't sign it.

- Debby, is your father home?

- Yeah.

Tell him lunch is ready.

Daddy, Mommy says lunch is ready.

Be right there, baby.

Could you not smoke at the table?

This is for the front door,

the back door and the garage.

- Does that hurt?

- It's not that bad.

I think you should let somebody look at it.
