A Tourette Syndrome sufferer who hated school while growing up strives to become the teacher he never had in this inspirational Hallmark Hall of Fame drama. As a young boy, Brad began making off noises - impulsive noises that were impossible to suppress. As a result, Brad was tormented by his classmates, and accused by his teachers of intentionally disrupting class. It wasn't long before Brad started to hate school, but then an understanding principal offered just the kind of encouragement the struggling boy needed to turn his life around. Thanks to the good will of one sympathetic educator, Brad decided to become the kind of teacher who favored patience and kindness over authority and control. After being rejected by twenty-four schools, Brad was finally given the opportunity to prove his true worth as a teacher. This is the story of a man who relied on resilience and determination to get through life, and who devoted his existence to helping others like him overcome incredible odds.
