Synopsis

Romance can be risky, perplexing and filled with the perils of miscommunication and that's if you aren't Adam for whom life itself is this way. Adam, a handsome but intriguing young man who has all his life led a sheltered existence - until he meets his new neighbor, Beth, a beautiful, cosmopolitan young woman who pulls him into the outside world, with funny, touching and entirely unexpected results. Their implausible and enigmatic relationship reveals just how far two people from different realities can stretch in search of an extraordinary connection.
