Charity

Written & Directed by Alex Haney

A teenager struggles to find courage in the face of a vicious bully when a death threat sends shockwaves through her family and school. Based on a true story. “Charity” addresses how parents should and should not deal with bullying, how schools sometimes react, and how cyberbullying painfully affects teenagers. It sends the message that it can get better because you make it better, and that a positive future is always there if you believe in yourself.

Alex has done a great job with his message here. I absolutely loved the way Katherine becomes empowered over time and rises above what she has gone through. It’s such a message of hope for those kids who think ‘This will never end.’ … Please give Alex my thanks for tackling this subject in a compelling way.
