Short

Through personal interviews, conversations with teenage boys, meetings with experts and considerable humor and self-exposure, Edan Alterman sets out to examine how height affects men who are shorter than others. Are shorter men funnier? Does a short stature create a tall character? Why do girls only want to date tall guys? And who do the short guys go out with? The film follows two short boys who still dream of being tall, and short adults, who have learned to live in a world that at times teases them, but generally just blocks their view.
