The Tic Code

2000 Drama | Family

"The Tic Code" tells the story of Miles, an extraordinary gifted twelve year-old who lives with his single mother, Laura, and shares a fierce love of jazz with his best friend Todd. Miles is distinguished for his musical brilliance yet also set apart by a neurological disorder. He must cope with the teasing and bullying of his classmates, but more importantly with the alienation of his father, a studio musician uncomfortable with his affliction. Sensitive to Miles' need for a father, Laura arranges for Miles to meet his idol, the legendary saxophonist Tyrone Pike. A breathless improvisational meeting between the two forges a friendship. Miles' desire for his mother to share in his new found love for Tyrone leads him into a child's innocent game of matchmaking.
