Timothy Spall narrates a documentary following five young people with Tourette syndrome as they spend a week in a US summer camp with other young people who share their behaviour, which is characterised by involuntary movements and noises. Campers are encouraged to explore their syndrome through a variety of activities, rather than suppress it as society often demands. What are the challenges of living with Tourettes, and will the teenagers leave better equipped to deal with their condition?
