“Descent,” starring Rosario Dawson, Chad Faust and Marcus Patrick, tells the story of a college co-ed who is brutally raped and struggles alone to rebuild her life.
During her senior year, Maya talks to Jared at a fraternity party. He takes her to dinner and then to his apartment where he assaults her. Afterwards, her personality changes and she becomes withdrawn. At night, she's someone else entirely, living a seductive life in the club scene and sniffing cocaine. Eventually, Maya and Jared’s paths cross.
