Eleven-year-old Anne is a lovely blonde girl of angelic beauty, the kind one cannot ignore. The longer you look, though, the more you see that Anne behaves differently from her peers. She suffers from Tourette’s syndrome, which makes her body do things against her will. Fearing that she will not be accepted, Anne tries to keep her tics under control, which is not easy. She prefers flying through life so that nobody notices anything.
