Synopsis: “Rose Petals” follows the story of two women and a girl who are sexual assaulted and raped. The story flips back and forth between their stories as they report them to the police: Bethany was cat-called while walking home, Mackenzie was sexually assaulted by her best friend at a party, and Erica was raped by her boyfriend. It captures the way they are treated by the police and by those around them. It also calls out the audience and society for their ignorance and silence pertaining to stories of sexual assault and rape in both the media and people around them.
Content warnings: Coarse language, discussions of sexual assault/rape, discussions of sexual assault between minors, implications of abuse
