Losing My Religion

When Joanne's son Jamie gets bullied, she assumes that his Catholic school will do everything they can to help. She is shocked to discover, though, that he is being attacked because the other children think he's gay. Headteacher Mr Georgeson runs a tight ship, but although he says he abhors bullying, he can't condone homosexuality. Joanne's husband Dave tells her to keep her nose out, as she'll make it worse, and that Jamie'll grow out of it. But things are much worse for Jamie than anyone realises, and if the school and his parents don't support him, will Jamie be pushed to desperate measures?
