The Director undertook film from a personal experience. "I HAbía heard about bullying, but I had no idea what it really was;" My only daughter suffered in his school, I understood n that families that passed by this, y were alone, nobody explained to you very well what to do, in school neir knew how to face it and parents of rest of companions did not correct to react, explains Piluca Baquero. "It was n, when I felt need to explain drama by which se children and ir families pass, to sensitize society, so that our politicians realize that bullying is a scourge and that we have to act." Today's children are adults of tomorrow, a society without violence, without aggression, without Taras, is a better society. It seemed very important to Me to keep anonymity of children involved in film, so I to cartoons, keeping ir voices real. "Collaboration with Javier de Juan was fundamental," he adds.Photo: Javier de Juan, illustrator responsible for animation of documentary. /Video: Interviews with some mors of children who have suffered harassment and with John.
