“Three perceptions of one truth – hers, his and ours. A woman walks home at night. She is overwhelmed from behind by a stranger. He grabs her and tries to rip off her clothes. They fight. The point of view switches between man and woman. Reality and fears blur into each other. A new point view is involved: eyewitnesses who live in surrounding houses. They look down to an escaping perpetrator and a helpless victim. But for the woman herself this situation is not so clear.”
