August 12th - Out Drinking

Picture the awful uncertainty of knowing something terrible has happened to you but not knowing precisely what.

Rose, a wife, mother with a successful career, talks to Paula Penfold about the night that turned into a nightmare. Rose is sure she was the victim of a horrible crime after she went out for a drink with a girlfriend. The problem is, she has only fragments of memory.

Would it be best if she could establish that nothing actually happened to her? Should she try to banish the whole incident from her mind?

In the end Rose sets out to do neither. She decides to try to prove that she was drugged and assaulted. It is the only way, she believes, she can get some closure.

So, with Paula Penfold’s help, she agrees to a forensic test.
