The dramatic true account of one family's struggle with a
tormenting medical mystery.
Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old with
the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that day forward his
life became a hell of irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances,
and Cory embarked on an excruciating journey from specialist to
specialist to discover the cause of his disease. Soon it became unclear
what tics were symptoms of his disease and what were side effects of
the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty is that it kept
getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell.
