Gossamer follows six characters through several months as they experience and witness bullying in and around a high school. You will meet Kristen, a quirky freshman who finds out that words can hurt. There is Alyssa, another freshman who feels powerful when she torments Kristen. Marcy is Kristen's mother who must deal with her own feelings of inadequacy to help her daughter through the pain. Kori is a dedicated teacher subjected to abuse and harrassment from parents and the administration. Tyler is a talented young musician whose best friend is a victim of the bullies. Lastly there is Joe, an undercover policeman who witnesses the bullying but can do nothing about it in order to keep his cover and finish the job he was sent to do. These six lives intertwine and relate through the high and low points of the year.
