Bully is a character-driven documentary that follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Offering insight into different facets of America's bullying crisis, the stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. This documentary provides an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals' offices.

The video kit includes the PG-13 film as well as a version of the film for younger viewers, a printed copy of Facing History’s A Guide to the Film BULLY: Fostering Empathy and Action in Schools and a copy on a USB flash drive, and other educational materials.
