A 12-year-old girl who has never quite fit in at her school.
During the day, the other kids ridicule the way she dresses, the things she thinks are funny, and the music she likes.
One day after school, the girl begins walking home and the some of her classmates follow. They are taunting her and laughing at her loud enough for her to hear.
She stops. This is what the classmates have been waiting for.
They run toward her, throwing her backpack on the ground, and surrounding her.
They stop short of hitting her, but they threaten her with words and taunts, challenging her to tell on them.
The girl fears the group, and doesn't know how to react to the situation. While the kids are still taunting her, she breaks free and runs home.
At home, the girl's parents are away at work, and she has no one to talk to. Her heart is pounding and she doesn't know what to do.
She remembers how her mom always comes home from work and drinks a beer to relax. Wondering if the beer will help her relax after this stressful situation, the girl opens the refrigerator, and takes a beer....
