I saw a film earlier about a bullied American-born girl living somewhere in Southeast Asia. When she fought back against her bullies, she was punished by being sent to a so-called correctional facility. The so-called correctional facility was even worse than the original school she had been bullied @ initially.Ā 

In the facility, she was terrorized by inmates & guards alike, from one day to the next, the girl (whose name is Mallory) doesn't know if she will survive. Her uncle (who took her to the facility) doesn't know just how terrible the place is.

He thinks it's just like a reform school.Ā 

There are several aspects of the film I could have done without, but I will say it made me grateful to live in the United States, not some third world hellhole.Ā
