She Fought Alone is a 1995 made-for-television movie that follows the story of Caitlin Rose, a high school cheerleader who becomes the target of bullies when she begins dating the school quarterback, Josh. The movie stars Tiffani Thiessen as Caitlin, Brian Austin Green as Josh, and Isabella Hofmann as Caitlin's mother, Sandy. The movie is set in a small Texas town where high school football is the heart and soul of the community. Caitlin is a sweet and popular cheerleader who catches the eye of Josh, the school's star quarterback. When Josh asks Caitlin out on a date, she is over the moon with excitement. However, their relationship soon becomes the source of jealousy and anger among Josh's ex-girlfriend, Erica, and her friends.

Erica and her friends begin to bully Caitlin, both physically and emotionally. They vandalize her locker, spread rumors about her, and even assault her in the school bathroom. Despite these hardships, Caitlin refuses to break up with Josh or let her tormentors get to her. She finds solace in her mother, Sandy, who encourages her to stand up for herself and seek help from the school administration.

Caitlin's struggle with bullying is exacerbated by the school's lack of action against her tormentors. The school administration is apathetic towards Caitlin's pleas for help, and the football coach, who is also Josh's father, dismisses her experiences as unimportant. Caitlin's situation only worsens when Erica accuses her of stealing money from her locker, causing Caitlin to be suspended from school and ruining her reputation.

Determined to clear her name and put an end to the bullying, Caitlin takes matters into her own hands. She decides to take Erica to court and sue her for defamation of character. With the help of a sympathetic lawyer, Ms. Murry, Caitlin wins the case and exposes Erica's lies in court. This victory gives Caitlin the confidence to stand up to her bullies and reclaim her life.

Throughout the movie, Tiffani Thiessen delivers a powerful performance as Caitlin, showcasing the character's resilience and strength in the face of adversity. The chemistry between Thiessen and Brian Austin Green is palpable, and their on-screen romance is believable and sweet. Isabella Hofmann is also noteworthy as Caitlin's mother, Sandy, who serves as a pillar of support for her daughter throughout the movie.

Overall, She Fought Alone is a compelling and emotional movie that tackles the timely topic of bullying in schools. The movie's message is clear: no one should have to suffer in silence or fear for their safety, and it is crucial for schools to take swift action against bullying.
