Cut Up Kids

Synopsis
An unspoken, terrifying cult is sweeping through Britain’'s youth. Largely unreported, self-harm is turning into an epidemic with around 500 young people ending up in casualty each week. This film explores the stories of Beth, Tor and Gary - three young people trying to confront the violence they inflict upon themselves. Shocking, revealing and intimate, the film reflects a growing reality, but it also shows how there are ways to escape as the young people talk, listen, grow and change.
