A dramatic-comedy, inspired by the lives of two people with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, whose emotional dysfunctions threaten to sabotage their budding romance. Donald is a good-natured but hapless taxi driver with a love of birds and a superhuman knack for numbers. Like many people with AS, he likes patterns and routines. But when the beautiful but complicated Isabel joins the autism support group he leads, his life - and his heart - are turned upside down. Written by

In the first group scene, Donald talks about numbers as he stares at the microwave oven countdown. When the camera cuts away from the digital readout, the one/second beep of the microwave can still be heard but when the camera returns to the readout, fewer seconds elapse than beeps heard. See more
Be my friend Donald, be my best friend, please, because I really need you. I always felt like you wanted us to get married or something.
I never said that.
Not with words. But instead of that, do you want to just be my friend?
Without the sex?
Without the pressure. My friendship is all I have to give. Do you want it?
