Weeks ago, teenager

Bethany Platt be­gan work­ing as a lap dancer at a lo­cal gen­tle­men’s club in a des­per­ate bid to take con­trol of her own life. Since be­ing sex­u­ally-groomed and and re­peat­edly raped by her now-im­pris­oned per­pe­tra­tor,

Nathan, Bethany has strug­gled to men­tally re­cover and now sees ex­otic danc­ing as a means of exerting her power over men and po­ten­tial preda­tors.

Un­for­tu­nately, Bethany’s covert pro­fes­sional life­style was re­cently rum­bled af­ter she framed Gary for as­sault­ing her friend and co-worker

Sam in a vain bid to stop him rec­on­cil­ing his ro­mance with her mother Sarah.

Dis­mayed by Bethany’s un­char­ac­ter­is­tic be­hav­iour, Gary fol­lowed her to the club, dis­cov­ered she was a dancer and tried to drag her away. How­ever, Bethany turned on Gary and had him beaten up, be­fore bla­tantly ly­ing to her mother that he groped her! Morti ed, Sarah in­ves­ti­gated and, re­al­is­ing the truth, rowed with Bethany.

To Bethany’s mor­ti­fi­ca­tion, her grand­mother Gail over­heard she was a dancer and passed along the word to Au­drey, her mother. Des­per­ate for more an­swers, both women later check out the club, arous­ing the owner’s sus­pi­cions with their con­stant ques­tions. Soon af­ter, Bethany takes to the stage for a per­for­mance and is horri ed to spy her grand­mother and great­grand­mother in the au­di­ence. As is usual with the Platt women, a pub­lic fracas breaks out, re­sult­ing in Bethany’s sack­ing.

Back home, Bethany’s fury ter­ri­fies her fam­ily un­til Sarah steps in and cuts her daugh­ter’s tirade short with a de­ci­sion that sends shock­waves through the house­hold.
