Synopsis

Bullying is a shockingly common phenomenon which begins in the schoolyard and goes viral on social media. Filmmaker Eef Hilgers lends a platform to a seldom-heard voice, as 13-year-old Rosalie paints a picture of persistent psychological torment, which ends up tainting even the former sanctuary of her own bedroom. By speaking up about it and trading stories with other victims over the internet, she slowly recovers her self-esteem.
