Two high school friends, John, a young movie director, and Vince who has become a drug dealer with a serious problem with both alcohol and drugs, are in a hotel room. The conversation between them is soon about a peculiar event that has happened ten years before in the final days of school: John had sex with Amy Randall who had just left Vince. Pressed by Vince, John finally acknowledges that he forced Amy and that one could say that he raped her. Vince has taped John's confession and organizes a confrontation in the room between John and Amy whom he had previously invited. At first reluctant, the young woman will finally evoke that night which has marked for life the three protagonists.
