In Your Own Backyard by Alyssa Pothier

"But sexual harassment – assault – whatever, that’s what he did. You’re saying I did the same thing, the same thing Weinstein did, the same thing that all those other – do you really think I’m like them?"

In the midst of the Me Too Movement, how could a marriage survive accusations of sexual harassment and assault? In Your Own Backyard explores the grey area of a topic where people want black-and-white answers. What is forgivable? What isn't? Where is the line and why is it so hard to define?
