| Confusion!
I was confused by the end scene. Who is the woman that Mandy runs to in the country? Is it her Grandma? It just seems weird because Mandy looked super happy to be seeing her, why didn't Jennifer give her daughter to this woman at first? Instead of running away with her? I don't get it. I hate it how Jennifer goes to jail for protecting her child from a rapist. I think that's sick. She deserves better. I really hate her husband too, he is such a sicko, he hurt his own child and continues to want to see her, to abuse her (emotionally, psychologically) and he shows no remorse for what he has done. He acts as though he didn't do a thing wrong and that what he did was normal behaviour between a father and daughter.

Where is the justice in this film?
