Director Statement

In TV and Films, disability is stereotyped and characters are portrayed as either victims, evil villains, social outcasts or superheros. We wanted a film that showed everyday topics, such as school, friends and life. We chose bullying because statistics show that 1 in 4 Australians experience bullying.
