To the best of my knowledge, this movie is about a Jamaican man who is trying to achieve success in his singing career. This does not happen (at first), so he turns malevolent towards society and goes around creating violence, killing people, and dealing drugs. He likely rapes a woman during this spree.

She gets upset at this admission and runs away. He is shown snickering at her outburst and happy that he rejected her.
*Taken from the script:
Rob. I was crazy about you. I wanted to sleep with you, one day, but not when I was sixteen. When you broke up with me — when you broke up with me — because I was, to use your charming expression, tight, I cried and cried and I hated you. And then that little shitbag asked me out, and I was too tired to fight him off, and it wasn’t rape because I said okay, but it wasn’t far off. And I didn’t have sex with anyone else until after college because I hated it so much. And now you want to have a chat about rejection? Well, fuck you, Rob.
Penny stands and leaves. Rob just sits.
So that’s another one I don’t have to worry about. I should have done this years ago.
