Tawny's life would be perfectly ordinary if it weren't for the fact that 22 years ago she was ‘the girl’ in a high-profile celebrity rape case. 
Caught between running from a story she doesn’t want to tell and knowing that the media chase won’t end until she speaks out, ‘Court.’ explores the mutability of story, truth and victimhood.

A fictional story inspired, in part, by the life and experiences of Samantha Geimer.  Two actresses portray one woman, pursued for 22 years for "the truth".
