This year alone, more than 13 million kids will be taunted, harassed, and pushed around for being who they are -- making bullying the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the United States.
Lee Hirsch, director of the new documentary "Bully," hopes to shed light to the startling statistic and the often painful, endangered lives of bullied kids.
The anti-bulling film opens in theaters everywhere April 13.
Most agree that bullying is wrong, but the movie is part of a collaborative effort called The Bully Project meant to educate parents, students, and teachers on how to stop bullying and prevent it in the future.
CBN News spoke with Hirsch about "Bully," and why it's important for families across the nation to see this film. Click play to watch.
