A powerful and inspirational story of five kids, from all over the US, who enter experimental, interactive and arts-based programs at SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young.

MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER is the powerful and inspirational story of five kids, from all over the United States, who enter experimental, interactive and arts-based programs at SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young. After a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, some have found themselves close to suicide, others enter SAY withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from fluency training and the pressure to not stutter or remain silent. Over the course of a year, we witness firsthand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: it's okay to stutter.
