A naïve small-town girl struggling just to keep up with the fast pace of college life falls prey to a sadistic sexual predator whose popularity exempts him from suspicion in director Bethany Rooney's cautionary tale of campus sex crimes. Though Melissa Connell (Candace Cameron Bure) is at first intimidated at the prospect of striking out on her own at Pierpoint College, her initial worries are somewhat relieved when she receives a special invitation to attend an upcoming campus party. When Melissa is brutally raped by campus ladies' man Scott (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) at the party, her subsequent attempts at making a case to the school authorities are quickly foiled by a notable lack of evidence. Now ridiculed and ostracized by her campus peers, Melissa is forced into a deadly game with fraternity fiend Scott that could prove his guilt if it doesn't kill her first.
