The controversial right to bear arms is at the heart of American culture.

In the USA there is a huge divide among parents. Some are against the sale of toy guns while others are buying the children the real thing.

This documentary sheds light on the world of child shooters, illuminating the fascinating beliefs, ambitions and paranoia that underpin it.

Teaching kids to shoot is seen as a fun family experience and yet over 3000 children are injured or killed every year in accidental shootings.

This unique and moving film follows the stories of three American families tackling the difficult issues behind the American relationship with firearms and the compelling stories behind the horrifying statistics.
