  • A twelve-year-old boy, Miles (Christopher George Marquette), living with his mother in New York City is inspired by the jazz scene and aspires to be a jazz musician like his father. However, Miles is challenged by a neurological disorder that alienates him in school and makes his father uncomfortable. When he meets saxophonist Tyrone Pike (Gregory Hines)--one of his idols, who becomes a father figure to Miles--he tries get Pike to fall in love with his mother. A difficult but heart-warming story, THE TIC CODE features a fantastic musical score and live New York performances.
