NotesA ten year old boy with Tourette's Syndrome is a gifted musician. While his teacher wants him to pursue a classical career he wants to play jazz. His mother takes him along to a night club where eventually he plays with a saxophone player. It then turns out that the saxophone player also has Tourette's Syndrome. While the boy's mother accepts his condition the father of the saxophonist does not. The only other films in this list featuring Tourette's are Niagara, Niagara (1997) and Jimmy Zip (1999).
