Descent (2007)

Maya (Rosario Dawson) is an up-and-coming artist and college student who is date raped by a sociopath who utters racist slurs in her ear as he brutally rapes her. She disconnects herself from familiar surroundings and struggles to break free of the resulting depression and addiction, Maya seeks out the help of a DJ she named Adrian (Marcus Patrick). The two lure the rapist to Maya's place, and after she ties him and blindfolds him, allows Adrian to rape him several times. At the end of the film Maya seems slightly regretful and recalls her saying she'd enjoy her revenge, and then sheds a tear, seeming to indicate she is still not over her psychological issues.
