From Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet comes this riveting drama in which academic power and sexual politics collide. When Carol, a struggling college student, meets privately with her professor, he consoles her with a pat on the back and a promise that her grade will improve if she continues to meet with him regularly. But his world begins to unravel when she reports his behavior and accuses him of sexual harassment. He desperately tries to convince her that she has misinterpreted his intent. Or has she?
