The film follows a young man (Sheehan) with Tourette’s Syndrome who embarks on a life-changing road trip with two fellow residents from a behavioral clinic.

Pic is produced by Bradley Gallo, Michael A. Helfant, Robert L. Stein, Brent Emery and Guy J. Louthan. William Gallo and Viola Jager are exec producers, and Philip M. Cohen, Raphael Kryszek Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Junior, Alberto Raposo de Oliveira and Allen Church are co-exec producers.

“I love this movie for its performances, but also for its humor and sense of hope,” said Pfardrescher. “It’s rare to find a movie that can touch your heart, but won’t shy away from tough subject matter.”

The deal was negotiated by Well Go’s Pfardrescher with Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver of Paradigm Talent Agency on behalf of the filmmakers.
