stand against bullying with Shaw, Shaw Direct and Entertainment One

Bully gives an intimate glimpse into the bullying crisis by taking
its audience into the homes and schools of five kids and families. A

of growing up - from being bullied to family relationships, from
stress at school to thoughts of suicide - help is a call or a click
