Birgit Gohlke, a film and media scholar, has stuttered since early childhood. She deals well with it, but after watching "The King's Speech", Birgit decides to take action. Together with speech therapist Petra Nickel they created STUTTERING – MY CONSTANT COMPANION. Along with Birgit Gohlke herself and David Seidler - author of "The King's Speech" who himself stuttered as a teenager - three other stuttering protagonists talk about their day to day challenges. "An enriching film that breaks down clichés and prejudices and gives a voice to those who flow of speech is at times inhibited." (spielfilm.de)
