In American Bully, it starts out as just a typical day in the lives of seven high school students in a town that looks like Anywhere, U.S.A. But when one middle-American teenager – deeply affected by 9/11, terrorism and the war in Iraq – and his friends become involved in an isolated high school altercation, it escalates into a hate crime that shocks the entire nation and sends a small town reeling.

With intense performances from a cast of emerging young stars, American Bully is a haunting and relevant film forcing us to confront the harrowing and potent menace that lurks just under the surface of any town in America.
