The story: inspired in real life, we closely follow the life of the typical Jekyll and Hyde character: a little manic-depressive teen girl that snaps into an agressive character now and then. The twist? The passive character is performed by a girl (Leonora Taylor, 15) and the agressive by a boy (Fernando Dominguez, 16). The character is driven to take immediate action when she/he is constantly threatened by family, school peers, teachers, and bullies for her/his anti-social behavior. The result: media induced violence.
