Storyboard Description

After being raped, Alice returned home for the summer. This story broad is made up of three different situations that has happened between Alice and each family member. Each situation focuses on how each family member (sister, mom, and dad) tries to deal/understand what Alice went through. Situation 1: Mary, Alice's sister, doesn't know how to act around Alice Situation 2: Alice's father thinks Alice let the rape happen since the rapist didn't have a weapon when the actual rape took place. He fails to comprehend what goes on when a women is raped, so Alice pulls him aside and helps him understand. Situation 3: Alice wants to try to talk the rape because it helps her, so her mom tries to listen. Unfortunately, her mother couldn't take it.
