A nuanced, uncompromising look at a romance in which a painter with undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome challenges a young woman's conventional ideas and his own understanding of love.
Nelson (Alvin Keith)
has Asperger's syndrome, a condition that impairs social function. Undiagnosed, poor, African-American, and a painter, he is pushed to society's fringes. He meets Sadie (Marin Ireland)
, a young woman with broken dreams who now treads water at a job that’s not her career, has a roommate who’s not her friend, and sleeps with her married boss, Mark (Gerry Lehane)
. A one-night stand grows into an unlikely romance wherein two people lost in different ways begin to find themselves through each other. But the conventional expectations imposed by others -- and by Sadie -- put their relationship in jeopardy.
