Inside the whirlwind filmmaking process of mastering lines, pushing through take after take, and grappling with high expectations, "Becoming Bulletproof" chronicles the genesis of a riveting film and a personally and socially transformative experience. The film captures the essence of artistic expression through vibrant human bonds and powerful insights. As one of the actors says: "I do not want pity because I have a disability, I just want to be understood. I want disability to have a seat at the table in pop culture."
