WHAT happens when you fall in love with someone for whom love itself is an alien concept?
In the unconventional romantic comedy, ADAM (12A), the tale of a romance between a bright, sophisticated young woman and a mysterious, sheltered, brilliant young man with Asperger's syndrome, becomes an excursion into the riddle of romantic chemistry and the moving ways people find to connect, even when they can't possibly see the world in the same way.
"Really, the bottom line is that all relationships are difficult, and full of misunderstandings, because that's just how we're wired," says writer and director Max Mayer.
"It's through no fault of our own, really. But I think a story like this gets at the idea that we also all have a kind of innocence at our core where we can still touch each other."
