Storyline

The plot follows a boy by the name of David, who is suffering bullying in the extreme at school. The school will do nothing to stop it, and instead blame David for his bullying. Pushed over the edge, David takes a video camera everywhere with him at school, recording how his tormentors have made him. He goes home, and recording a final message to his mother, puts a gun in his mouth, and blows his head off. On top of the bullying, David was also following in his father's footsteps, a man who entered a school and killed everyone in it. On hearing the shot, the mother rushes to the room, to find the video, with the faces of the bullies on it. After watching the video, highly psyched, the mother takes the gun and goes to the school Parent's Night. Once there she confronts the school headmaster... Written by Dave Wilson <davemw@yahoo.com>

Scary and poignant
29 June 2002 | by (Marbella, Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a strange piece of British film, its actually quite scary and very poignant. It works on two levels, firstly as an effective short thriller (something that the British use to make rather well). Secondly, and more importantly, its a poignant look at working class youth today. It actually feels real, even teenagers (those harshest of critics) will recognise the characters and their sad world. This short film will stay with you for some time, excellant acting (especially from the young bully) and extremely well directed. Not many people would have seen this, but check it out. I think it would have worked really well as a short, accompanying a british feature at the cinema.
