YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL Production Credits

SYNOPSIS: Jesse, a young man, spreads the words 'You Are Beautiful' through the streets of his home city.  When he and his friend Kia encounter the troubled and homeless Many-Colored Man, the value of Jesse's message is challenged.  Can 'You Are Beautiful' reach someone who has never heard those words, or more importantly, doesn't believe them about himself?
