He barks, spits and shakes. He can't help it.

Duncan McKinlay has Tourette Syndrome. At 7 he noticed what he called a devil in his head that made his life hell. His parents thought he was delinquent. His classmates were sure he was nuts. In his teens, it wasn't a question of whether to kill himself, but when.

At 19, when he was finally diagnosed, Duncan made researching TS his life path. He's come to understand that his strange ticks are release triggers for the high energy charging through him. At 27 he's a virtuoso at channelling this energy. He's just finished a doctorate in psychology. He's in nationwide demand for his workshops that enlighten, entertain and boost the spirits of the 100,000 across Canada who have Tourette's.

Life's a Twitch takes us on a quirky ride into Duncan's world... where he polishes a hearse for two days outside the funeral parlour that was his home... where he endlessly builds and demolishes cities of Lego... where he moves like Elvis, belting out songs that turn his nightmare into a celebration.
