Storyline

We've all known the kid who lived in fear of morning roll call at school. The teenaged girl assailed with cruel nicknames and rude limericks. The man who dreads giving his name to the maitre'd. We've gathered them together to share their stories -- the funny, the tragic, and everything in between. Written by Rocco Giuliano

Great Documentary!
5 June 2018 | by jennalove-01675See all my reviews

Very engaging documentary with an interesting premise - what if something as simple as a name could affect your entire life? For the people in this film, that is exactly the case. Great cast as well!
