This documentary takes a look on all sides of the infamous F-word.
It's taboo,obscene and controversial, yet somehow seems to permeate every single aspect of our culture - from Hollywood, to the schoolyard to the Senate floor in Washington D. It's the word at the very center of the debate on Free Speech - and everyone seems to have an opinion.

Although his book has a rather radical perspective on the world, Manson believes that a lot of the feel-good self-help books out there are actually damaging in the long run.
He encourages his readers to build resilience and know that sometimes, life can be really crappy.
This leads people to think that their life isn’t good enough, clearly, everyone else is having a better time.
The reality is, people only post their so-called ‘highlight reel’ on Facebook, you’re not going to post a picture of yourself in your sweats eating leftovers out of a Tupperware container on a Saturday night, are you?
Mark Manson begins by explaining why we need to stop fixating on the positive all of the time.
He links this to his discussion about why happiness is actually a problem.
It’s this constant need for more, that actually prevents us from ever being happy.
Most importantly, Mark Manson will help you pick meaningful values for your life and teach you that you don't have to try anymore.
You need to have an open mind when reading this book, it’s not going to be your average self-help book but if you’re willing to accept his philosophy you may walk away with a new perspective on the world.
Manson explains that by focusing only on the positive, we are essentially reminding and allowing ourselves to fixate on things we don’t have and things that we’ve failed at.
The reality is, that if you are truly happy, you don’t need to remind yourself that you are you simply are content.
He discusses why certainty is bad before explaining why failure is good.
