THE STORY:

The words "Retard" and "Retarded" are often used by people in a derogatory manner without consideration for the people who are hurt by their use. This short documentary takes a look at individuals with intellectual disabilities, explores their jobs, and the measures they have undertaken to stop the use of the word, specifically a rally through the Special Olympics called "Spread the Word to End the Word." It also explains the current legislation to remove the words "Mentally Retarded" from federal documents, and finally witnesses the individuals explaining, in their own words, how they feel when they hear the word, and how it hurts them.
