Synopsis:
Bibi and Bobo are best friends who do everything together, both online and offline. All is fine till the school bullies began making fun of Bobo. The abuse eventually snowballs into the online world – Bobo’s sacred haven. Feeling cornered, Bobo finds it difficult to express himself. As the bullying continues, Bibi turns into a helpless bystander, leaving her best friend in the lurch. Will their friendship survive the test? What could one do when the bullies strike?

Pick-A-Hero is a children’s series that revolves around the issue of bullying and its effects online, as told through the eyes of Bibi and Bobo. Performed and staged for, and by, young people, the series hopes to show how youths can stand up together against bullies; especially in moments that aren’t visible to an adult’s eye.
