Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every two minutes. Today, nearly 40% of the women raped are between the ages of 14-17. Most tell no one. Embedded into JANE, are the steps needed for girls and their families to prevent certain kinds of trauma, and if they can’t, how to begin healing from them. JANE reminds all of us that no one can deprive us of our essential wholeness. It all starts with a story…
Fiercely independent 15-year-old JANE STEWART wants to be a poet. Living with her romance-novel writing Aunt CLAIRE, feels like living inside a Hallmark card. Then ALEX MARTIN comes into her life. Sexy, gorgeous, funny and famous, Martin seems to understand her need to create, until he creates chaos by raping her….
Can Jane find justice in a courtroom or will she find another path to redemption? And besides, is it even really considered rape when a celebrity does it? This narrative feature film is based off of a true story.
“Its audience is every teenager, everyone who has ever been a teenager and everyone who loves a teenager.” Former California State Senator, Joe Simitian.
