Cyberbully

69 % of young people in the UK have experienced some form of cyberbullying. In the most severe cases, victims may face the pitfalls of webcams attacks, abuse and ‘trolling to suicide’. Anti-bullying campaigns encourage young people to ‘turn their backs’ on hostile behaviour on the Internet. However, for those who have already been targeted, it is not easy to escape the clutches of their tormentors. In the British thriller, Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) plays a Casey Jacobs, a teenage girl who is fighting her anonymous cyberstalker. Casey is a teenager who has experienced the worst of what the Internet has to offer; from a lower-level form of bullying, where participants are on the same level (a so-called peer-to-peer), to advanced computer intrusion techniques. With all her might, she is trying to put an end to her suffering. Cyberbully is inspired by many real cases. Although Casey’s story is extreme and formed into the eye-catching and dramatic form, all the events depicted are real and have indeed happened to individual victims.
