Adam

A story about two strangers. One a little stranger than the other...


Adam
A young engineer has Asperger's syndrome, and is socially awkward. Things perk up when a pretty young woman moves in next door, but she soon finds that pursuing romance with him will not be a walk in the park. A lot of the comedy derives from his inability to react to the real world in the way that most people do.

98 minutes.
