The “REJECT” documentary looks at the science of social rejection, with a solution-oriented focus on the roots of bullying behavior and violent behavior against the self or others. It raises public awareness about the serious potential lethal consequences of interpersonal rejection—peer bullying, parental neglect (or abuse), race discrimination, and other forms of social rejection across all ages. A few minutes experiencing rejection can cause reduced sense of self-esteem, self-control, belonging and meaningful existence. Rejection can create surges of anger and aggression; correlations exist between peer rejection and higher rates of delinquency, arrest,violent behavior and substance abuse.
