Comments:
”The winner is a moving and enlightening film. It shows very well what it is like to be bullied. The film is sad; at times you get a tear in your eye. It is loaded with good actors. The film's message is an important one because it tells you that no one is to be bullied." (Statement of the Children's Jury at Oulu ICFF 2013)
