Plot Summary
Life doesn't always deal you a fair hand. The trick is finding a way to play that hand to your advantage. It's a "coming-of-age" lesson that a piano prodigy, his mother, and a famous saxophonist all have to learn. Starring Gregory Hines, Polly Draper, and introducing the remarkable young actor Christopher Marquette. Set to the sensuous rhythms of New York's jazz scene, "The Tic Code" is a tender, romantic, and funny drama about learning to love despite what the real world throws you.
