"An alienated teenager's posturing online threat ignites a firestorm of fear in a small community, in this disturbing and perceptive look at how our media-fuelled, post-Columbine culture of fear can transform typical teen angst into intimations of murder."

Starring Connor Jessup (Falling Skies) and Alexia Fast (The Captive)
