Shut Up And Say Something follows Canadian icon and acclaimed international spoken word artist Shane Koyczan on an emotional road trip to reconnect with the father he never knew. Seen and heard by millions worldwide, Shane's poignant and powerful poems tackle everything from bullying to body image - but behind his larger-than-life stage persona is a private and awkward man. As Shane unravels the story behind his troubled childhood, we get a powerful and intimate look at how a master wordsmith mines the scars of his past for truth, acceptance and the most important poem of his life.
