The Road Within


The Road Within
A young man with Tourette's Syndrome just lost his mom. As his symptoms get worse, his dad, a frustrated politician, sends him to a behavioral clinic run by an unconventional female doctor. But the patient had made his mom a promise, and with the help of a rebellious anorexic and his withdrawn OCD roommate, the three embark on a life-changing race to the sea that includes car theft, shoplifting, fights, self-discovery, and maybe finding a new way to live. The film appears to have had a small release and weak reception from teh critics in the USA.
