In this film you will see how cyberbulling resembles "a virus", as portrayed by the narrator and main character in this film. We follow one student who is being cyberbullied, and are shown examples of cyberbullying. We are also given a suggestion of how to call attention to the issue of cyberbullying. It is a wonderful video to show to middle school students who are new to the concept, as it is a great metaphor for cyberbullying and paints a sobering picture of what it is like to be a victim.
This short film is a very powerful portrayal of how one young woman is driven to the tragic act of suicide after being tormented by a cyberbully. It is a tough thing to watch but makes the point across as to how serious cyberbullying is. In the film the woman winds up drowning herself. It implies that she walks into the water with the resolution of not coming back, and then shows part of her body lying still on the ground afterwards. It doesn't show her face but it might be traumatic to some.
