“We are very proud to make this film available and excited that we are working with Tugg Inc. to bring it out to the widest possible audience,” commented director Harvey Hubbell V. “After many years of being painfully misunderstood during my schooling, I knew I had to make a film to create the greatest awareness for dyslexia for the countless individuals of all ages that are unnecessarily struggling to thrive and be understood. I believe that all humans learn differently and that we have the power and opportunity to create a better society by empowering individuals and organizations to recognize, honor and grow the gifts that each of us possess. This film has the power to change lives,” Hubbell continued.
