A woman in denial has difficulty recalling the events of a violent assault. Ambiguity. Denial. Conformity. The character of Angie represents the everyday unfortunate relationships that people can go through, told metaphorically by a woman’s conflicted account of being sexually assaulted. Too often are we silenced out of fear and conformity. And too often are we in denial when we are uncomfortable with the truth.
