The extraordinary true story of Louise Nicholas’ fight for justice. Based on the best-selling book ‘My Story’ this feature length drama goes beyond the headlines to tell an intimate story about secrets and one woman’s struggle to have them heard.In 1993 Louise Nicholas made her first shocking accusations about being raped by policemen. Some believed her, many didn’t. CONSENT tells the story of the senior policeman who went to great lengths to help her fight her case, the journalist who exposed the truth, and the family at the center of the storm. From the director of OUT OF THE BLUE and the producer of THE GOLDEN HOUR comes a compelling story of secrets, betrayal, survival and love. A story of a woman who single-handedly rocked New Zealand’s police and justice system to their cores.
