Synopsis: IDOL highlights one of the most long lasting, current, and pivotal subjects facing our society today. As a result, President Obama performed a speech at the Grammys highlighting the issues women are suffering and has asked the nation to make a pledge against condoning this type of violence. Smart and pretty, Erika is your normal, vibrant, college student; but after an average night out with her best friend at her favorite artist’s concert, her whole world turns upside down. Erika is provoked to write a story which leads to an interrogation by her campus counselor. As she begins to recall the incident that took place, we start to realize that they have a lot more in common than different. Erika confronts her naive affection for her idol, and must decide whether to speak up or let her self-blame continue to mute her. As we follow this torn, young, woman relive a traumatic event, a stark contrast becomes apparent as she transforms into a fraction of the young, vibrant, woman she once was.
