Jennifer is a successful documentary director and professor who lives happily with her boyfriend in New York. But everything changes when she reads a short story she wrote at the age of thirteen. There's a huge gap between the supposed fiction and her memories. This mystery drama draws from the director Jennifer Fox's experience of being sexually abused in childhood. The film premiered at Sundance and was nominated for a Golden Globe.
