Synopsis

A BRAVE HEART: The Lizzie Velasquez Story is a documentary following the inspiring journey of 26-year-old, 58-pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti-bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labeling her 'The World's Ugliest Woman.' The film chronicles unheard stories and details of Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi-million-viewed TEDx talk, and follows her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill.
