Alex is visited at home by her corporate ex-bosses. She's just ended her contract with them, but they know she was working undercover to blow the whistle on their corrupt organisation. To intimidate her into not going public the two capitalists gang up on the young reporter to inflict a brutal beating on her vulnerable bottom. 50 strokes of the tawse should suffice to ensure her silence.
An intense, edgy scene with a thrashing that leaves Alex crying real tears. Our heroine is in the right, and she will beat the bad guys in the end - but sadly, it won't save her skin.
