Just a Kiss - One kiss - one obsession
‘Just a Kiss, has been produced to raise awareness of stalking, how to report stalking and the services available to victims to help them to cope and recover.

Just a Kiss follows the story of Mia, a young university fresher who, having met Ryan on a night out, becomes the victim of stalking.

Today at 4.00pm the second episode will be broadcast on the Commissioner’s social media channels.

In a series of nine episodes, one broadcast every day at 4.00pm, we follow Mia, her family and friends as the story unfolds.

It’s Freshers week for Mia who tries to embrace uni life. But does a chance meeting with fellow ‘country bumpkin’ Ryan help her settle in?

Zoë Metcalfe, North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner said: 

“We were delighted with the reception that the first two episodes of ‘Just a Kiss’ received at our Violence Against Women and Girls Event in July, and we couldn’t wait for the whole film to be made public.

“The events portrayed in this film sensitively reflect the experiences not just of victims of stalking, but their friends and loved ones as well. I would urge anyone who feels they may be a victim of stalking or harassment to contact Supporting Victims, where they can speak to experienced professionals offering help and advice.”
