FROM THE MOVIE WEB SITE: The Bully Chronicles is a compelling docudrama that addresses one of the most prevalent issues in society: Bullying. The story follows Avery Keller, a beautiful and popular high school sophomore, whose systematic physical, emotional and cyber bullying results in the suicide attempt of her former best friend, Jessica Burns. The filmmaker explores Avery's life to uncover the reason why a seemingly 'perfect' young woman would engage in bullying. With the help of hidden camera footage taken by Jessica and her best friend, Brian Slater, the story unfolds through the discovery of documented, self-recorded video journals and confrontations with the bully. At times gritty and shocking, heartbreaking and poignant, The Bully Chronicles uncovers what's happening today in an eye-opening way.
