Raag was apparently inspired by the Columbine high-school massacre to make this award-winning film.

Two 16-year-old school outsiders try to protect each other, but find the bullying of their peers growing in intensity. Soon there seems only one way out. 'Asks a lot of ugly questions about peer pressure, bullying and one's rights to revenge or at least defend oneself…accomplished...' (Boyd van Hoeij, European-films.net)
