Teen Files FLIPPED: Gun Awareness DVD
Teenage Maurice thinks shooting bullets into the air is fun and as long as the bullets don't land on him, he doesn't care where they fall. Quick-tempered Nick, on the other hand, feels powerful with a gun in his hands and interprets the slightest encroachment as a challenge.
These two teens are "flipped" - their worlds turned upside down for a jolting 24-hour period of altered reality. Invited to spend a day in the roles of homicide detective and surgeon, the young men are forced to confront their attitudes toward guns as they witness the grisly and heartbreaking aftermath of violence - on victims, on parents and, without warning, on themselves. These tough-talking teens are each touched and transformed as their exposure to the tragedy of gun violence leads to an experience of communication, compassion and understanding. The connection between high-risk behavior and life and death hits home in this explosive reality-based program.
