An inspirational documentary about a Highland Park teen premieres in Chicago this Sunday on WTTW.
The documentary "Different is the New Normal" is about Ariel Small, a 17-year-old who was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome when he was six years old. Teachers originally thought he was just acting out, but he was actually experiencing uncontrollable tics caused by Tourette's.
Small hopes the documentary about his life will help other kids realize that it's alright to be different, so they don't have to face the hardships he did while growing up.
Check out the trailer for the movie by Hourglass Films below. You can watch the full documentary on WTTW Sunday at 6 p.m.
