The Law of Averages explores the issue of kidney transplantation in a short drama made and acted by a group of 14- and 15-year-old students.
With the help of professional filmmakers and scientists, the students based the film on an ordinary family whose lives are suddenly changed when the son is diagnosed with kidney disease and requires a transplant.
The group of students from Barrhead School near Glasgow, won the opportunity to make the film after winning the Scottish round of First Light's Big Screen Science competition.
Following the film, the students describe the process they went through, from coming up with the original idea with their science teacher, to working on the script and taking on the challenge of acting in the film.
The broadcast version of this programme is subtitled.
