For Crying Out Loud (1×60′) – For many people crying is part of life and a recent study revealed that people who cry are healthier. But is it something those who blub take for granted, and why do some people find shedding a tear so hard?
Comedian Jo Brand can laugh, but she can’t cry. In this one-off documentary, Jo, a former psychiatric nurse turned comedian, goes in search of the secrets behind crying – why we cry, how we cry and why it appears we are all crying now.
By talking to men, women, young and old, to doctors, psychologists, crying specialists and crying clinics, Jo provides the comprehensive non-crier’s handbook to crying and, in so doing, may even find her own tears.
