Steven Chester Prince,
When is enough ... enough? Ever since they can remember, Pyper, Catie, and Lemzel have been ostracized from the rest of their peers. Pyper, especially, has been constantly bullied by their ultimate nemesis Natalie since they were all five years old. After years of watching this abuse, Pyper's friends Catie and Lemzel have finally decided that the continuous hazing has to stop... but at what price?Written by

In my last year in high school I read in one of the "red tops" a story about LazyTown actress Julianna Rose Mauriello appearing in a "grown up" drama. Seeing no sign of the movie over the years,I kept a note of it in case it ever appeared. After the passing of LazyTown star Stefán Karl Stefánsson,I looked at the credits of the cast,and finally fixed a viewing.
View on the short:
Joined by the late Skye McCole Bartusiak as the tough Coleman,Julianna Rose Mauriello gives a very good performance as Pyper,with Mauriello capturing the pent-up pain of the bullied Pyper. Done on a really low-budget,co-writer/(with cinematographer Ryan Sims) director Darren J. Butler does well in the limitations in taking a short look at bullying, with the opening showing the visible marks of hurt on Pyper's back,and the screenplay taking her and the bullies to a breaking point that offers no quick fix.
