Duration: 1 hour

Being robbed at gunpoint is the stuff of nightmares, but how does the victim cope when the finger on the trigger belongs to a 13-year-old? This film explores the consequences of teenage robbing sprees that spiralled out of control, causing fear, trauma and even the loss of a life. Following the perpetrator's online trail of MSN messages, YouTube uploads and boasting on social networks, it documents the experience of the victims targeted during three very different street robberies and explores their and their families' attempts to come to terms with the aftermath of terrifying attacks.
