When It Breaks is the inspiring story of Special Education teacher Konrad Wert and his personal journey through teacher burnout to advocacy. Stepping away from the classroom, Wert turns to his musical side career as a means to tour the country with his family and engage teachers, parents, and audiences in a conversation about the current state of Special Education. As opportunities arise, Konrad must decide how his service is most effective- as an advocating artist or as a teacher in the classroom.
