After campus activists bring attention to sexual assault to Reed college, Blake, a young gay man, realizes that his past early sexual encounters were more than just bad learning experiences. But gaps in the legal system and difficulties in getting peer support leave Blake feeling uncomfortable in his new identity as a survivor.
Testimony from experts in sexual violence and the filmmaker’s own assault offer context for understanding how each story of sexual assault is both commonplace and unique. Yeah Maybe No ultimately challenges audiences to see the complexity of sexual assault in order to more fully support survivors.
