This is a work of fiction, partially inspired by the real life experiences of our young contributors. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events, is purely coincidental. The views expressed in this film do not necessarily represent those of Tourette Scotland.
Whilst swearing or saying taboo words (coprolalia) only affects around 10% of people with Tourette's, a larger proportion of our contributors had those tics, so this story reflects that aspect of Tourette's.
Trigger Warning: Contains bad language, scenes of emotional distress and representations of motor and vocal tics that may trigger others' tics.
