MIS­CAR­RIAGE OF JUS­TICE

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Based on a true story, Rochdale school friends Holly, Am­ber and Ruby like to spend time hang­ing out at a lo­cal fast food shop owned by a friendly man they know as Daddy who gives them all free food. Un­for­tu­nately, their vis­its soon turn ugly when Daddy and his friends groom the girls and re­peat­edly rape them.

Trau­ma­tised, Holly van­dalises the shop and is ar­rested, fi­nally gath­er­ing the courage to re­port the rapes to the police. How­ever, the police coldly dis­miss her al­le­ga­tions due to in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence, leav­ing Holly and Sara Row­botham, a sex­ual health worker she con­fides in, frus­trated at the in­ac­tion, even af­ter they iden­tify one of the rapists.

Even­tu­ally, the dor­mant case comes to the at­ten­tion of the Greater Manch­ester Police who push for­ward and pros­e­cute the nine rapists. Will Holly and her friends fi­nally get the jus­tice they’ve been de­nied?
