Summary: Winner of the Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Children's Program! Will I make friends? Will other kids make fun of me? Am I different? These are the questions that any child might ask during the first few weeks of school, but they are far more troubling for children suffering from the involuntary facial tics and verbal outbursts associated with Tourette Syndrome. This insightful family documentary takes a candid look at the lives of more than a dozen American children who have Tourette's. The film explores what it is like for them, what measures they are taking to control it, and the challenges they face in their efforts to be accepted into the social mainstream as 'normal' kids.
