This film is a love story about a man named ADAM (Hugh Dancy) who has Asperger’s Syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. ADAM finds it difficult to be with others and often escapes into his love of space exploration. When BETH (Rose Byrne) moves into the apartment above him, he uses his unique, often funny, and sometimes painful social skills to begin to build the personal relationship that he so desperately desires. Adam is a romantic character piece about the obstacles to intimacy and the compromises we all make for love.
