A dramatic film about bullying through the eyes of a child.
Uniquely positioned, THE EQUATION OF LIFE was written and directed by an 11 year old boy, and is inspired by his real life, personal situation.
The film speaks kid-to-kids, and provides a forum for conversation and understanding. More than a bully-story, THE EQUATION OF LIFE teaches that every step you take changes the path on which you walk.
