Melinda attends a summer party where she is raped. She calls the police, but leaves before they get there. Thus, her friends believe she got them all busted.... but she won't tell anyone the real reason and stops talking (for the most part) to anyone.

Melinda begins to hurt herself as a result of the violence done to her. She imposes both silence and isolation upon herself, as well as physical abuse. Chewing her lips kept her from speaking and scratching her skin with paperclips seemed to be a reminder of the same.

Melinda has no one talk to, so she begins to use talk show interviews in order to work through her own trauma. Role playing gives her a voice and aids her in her figuring things out.....
