TWISTED tells the stories of people who live with dystonia, a neurological disorder that forces muscles to twist into abnormal, often painful, movements or postures. Pat Brogan, a basketball coach and triathlete who developed dystonia after a bike accident; Shari Tritt, whose dystonia affects her whole body, and Remy Campbell, an artist who gambled on a radical form of brain surgery and won. Together, these individuals try to answer the question, when you are trapped inside your body, what will set you free?

Guest Speakers: Ochsner Clinic Neurologist, Dr. J. Rao and Don LeBlanc, Community Resident
