Bullied to Death depicts a 24 hours journey through the true stories of teenagers worldwide that experience severe bullying episodes at school, from their own families and on the web, as a result of their coming out about their sexuality.
The movie is centered on the real life and words of a 14-year-old boy from Buffalo, New York, who committed suicide in 2011 in a careless, inadequate society which is confused, cruel, and unable to solve the increasing violence that deviates towards pathology especially when gender-related matters are at stake.
The movie is without a precise place identification, thus representing all the possible places where these tragedies can happen. Actually, the whole world represents the ideal stage to set the film.
