Learning how to stand up for oneself is a lesson sometimes one can’t learn without some help. Watch as these protagonists discover new ways of expression.


In learning how to set up anti-bullying systems, a good start is knowing how to come together to confront them in the first place. In one film, a group of Athenian kids doing after-school theater lose their lead, who is being bullied by an older boy. A Kung Fu master comes to their aid. But in order to bring their friend back, they must first learn how to be a real team. In the last short, a school field trip to a boxing ring is unexpected, but the classmates learn about breaking boundaries and preconceived ideas.
