Product Description

From the creator of "Broken Toy," "Empty Shadows," and "Epilogue" comes a powerful and uplifting story about a bully who had to become a victim in order to understand the pain of bullied and tormented children.

"SCARS" tells the story of a popular middle school student named Billy, whom along with his best friends, picks on a smaller boy named Christopher. Christopher, who lost his mother to cancer six months earlier, remains the target of cruel remarks; even those about his mom.

Billy would have continued hurting Christopher if it wasn't for a sudden unforeseen event in Billy's life--an accident that changes his life forever. Now, scarred from being burned, he is the one who is different and his former friends turn on him. A move to a new school shows Billy the value of acceptance, sensitivity and becoming a caring person. Study guide included for classroom settings.

About the Actor

Director Thomas Brown, producer of seventeen video films, including the award-winning programs EMPTY SHADOWS, SCARS, EPILOGUE and STORM, offers a compassionate concern for harassed victims and a commitment toward seeing that everyone who encounters his program is educated, moved and made fully aware of the seriousness of the bully-problem. Tom has taken his message across the airwaves and has appeared as a special guest on numerous talk and news shows including Oprah, Good Morning America, Extra!, Leeza, Charles Grodin, CBS Weekend News, Danny Bonaduce, The Shirley Show in Canada, , Home and Family and four separate news magazine programs on CNN. His program has also been featured in many educational newspapers and magazines and national news programs including Parenting Today, NPR, Weekday Live, A/P Newswire, and Interact America. His foreword to Dr. Richard Hazlers recent book on bullying, "Breaking the Cycle of Violence - Interventions for Bullying and Victimization," leaves no doubt as to the long-lasting impact of his own experiences with childhood-bullying and why he has made it his life’s work to do something about it for children today.

The commitment to helping resolve the epidemic of childhood bullying began in 1992 with the Broken Toy Project; what started out as a video in 1992...grew to a national educational program in 1994, as a cry to understand...to comprehend...to once and for all do something about the verbal and physical abuses affecting thousands of children every day. The Broken Toy Project is striving to make schools a safer, more learning conducive environment, by helping to reduce the impact bullying has on its victims.

As a student, I watched this video twice in school.
When I saw it, I felt like it delivered students like me (at the time) a strong message about how we embrace people who were bullies or were bullied.

I felt bad for Christopher watching this video. May God rest his mom's soul...

Whether you are a parent or a teacher/guidance counselor, please screen this video or any other Thomas Brown video before you shown them to your children. I am a school counselor, and I have show two of his videos (Broken Toy, Scars). Both times I have received complaints from parents that their children come home with negative comments about the videos. With Broken Toy, I had a parent complain that her children had nightmares for several nights after watching the film. Thus, I decided never to show it again. Being a person that believes in second chances, I decided to give Thomas Brown a second try. I watched Scars ahead of time, and decided to show it to a fourth grade class. Apparently there is a word used in the story that sounds like the F word. I watched the film a second time and the only part of the story that I figure this takes place is when a bullied little boy (Christopher) stands up for another child (Billy), he says, "What you said to Billy is really....(inaudible). I can't imagine that he is using a cuss word, but since you can't understand him, I can't be sure. So no more showing Scars either I guess. Again, screen, screen, screen, and decide for yourself.
