Marlon has always been the object of ridicule. He lived with Tourette’s Syndrome without even knowing what it was. Still, Marlon fought through all the alienation and humiliation with patience and kindness. He is patient because it allows him to survive the world’s cruelty. He is kind because that’s just how much better he is than the rest of us.

But patience and kindness are not enough to raise a family. The frustration soon breaks him because he can’t stand not being able to provide his family the life they deserve.

Marlon wants to prove that having TS does not make him any less capable. Not for himself, but to provide a good life to the people who depend on him, and those who continue to believe in him.
