This documentary is concerned with the problem of bullying in the schools in the US. The director of this documentary is Lee Hirsch and it was first screened in 2011 at the Tribeca Film Festival. The US theater release was on March 30th, 2012.

The purpose of this documentary is to raise awareness and launch a number of campaigns in order to resolve the issue of bullying in schools. Unfortunately, the rating issues with this documentary has disrupted the screening in a number of theaters, hence interfering with the filmmakers plans for using this documentary in the campaign against bullying.

The story is focused on public schools in Mississippi, Iowa, Oklahoma and Georgia in the period of 2009/10. The filmmakers give us the opportunity to see everyday lives of the students and among them the ones that are the victims of the bullies.

The documentary also looks into the two cases of bullying that resulted in suicide. The untimely and tragic deaths of Ty Smalley and Tyler Long should encourage each of us to raise our voice and get involved in order to resolve this issue and prevent tragedies like these from ever happening again.
