Content indicator: reference to child sexual abuse.
Once upon a time, a child was sexually abused. The abuse was reported, and the perpetrator was discerned. The perpetrator was apprehended, and duly appeared in court. The courts found them guilty, and the perpetrator was sentenced to a punishment befitting their crime. Justice was acquired. The child was subsequently looked after, psychologically rehabilitated, and nourished with love. And they all lived happily ever after (except for the baddies).
