NEENAH - Statistics show about one in four kids in this country is bullied on a regular basis.
A movie shot at Neenah High School has a message that is hitting close to home. The project, called "Real for Us," premiered for freshmen at Neenah High School Wednesday.
It may not be easy to see, but in the hallways at Neenah High School, bullies may be at work.
"A lot of pushing, shoving, pushing them into lockers, books out of the hands, simple stuff," said Cody Michalkiewicz, a junior at Neenah High School.
It has become a growing trend filmmaker Ron Haese wanted to address.
"I saw a pattern emerging and everyone just needed this message to come out," said Haese.
"Real for Us" is a movie shot on location, starring high school students from Neenah and Clintonville.
Senior Morgan Harm plays Holly, a student who quickly becomes a bully victim.
"Verbal abuse, kind of at school, during classes, in the hallway," said Morgan Harm, a senior at Neenah High School.
Her character tries to commit suicide before her mother steps in.
And a hallway scuffle went viral, bringing to light the issue of cyberbullying.
"It's a lot easier for people to say things on a computer screen, instead of to somebody's face," said Harm.
"On Facebook, everyone in the world, friends of friends - you don't have to be friends with them - and you can see the wall post that you post on someone else's wall," said Michalkiewicz.
Some of the actors in the movie say some of the scenes may seem over the top, or a little exaggerated. The moviemaker says everything is based on experiences of high school students across the state.
"I just kind of took an arrow and kind of made a story that connected all the dots in what kids are really kind of going through nowadays," said Haese.
Haese says the problem isn't going away.
"Bullying is happening on every different level, from kindergarten all the way to twelfth grade," said Haese.
Haese says education, and courage will give victims a voice.
"There's principals, there's teachers, there's family members, there's other friends their own age. All they have to do is just open up, and just reach out to someone and ask for help," said Haese.
