Development and writing: The script idea came about, in 2016, after Glad reading several articles about male-on-male abuse. Glad researched about the crime later to find more shocking facts thus he proceeded to explore and latter on write the script. His intension was to make the film in honour of the victims. In his words he said “Male victims should not have to deal with it like a man. They should also be able to know that what’s done to them is wrong and come forward for support and justice”
Ruined was based on actual events that Glad read from articles written over the last couple of years. The story deals with many subjects; race, school issues, status, survival, family issues, abuse, society issues, injustice but most importantly RAPE.
