Sam (Keir Gilchrist) is an 18-year-old with a mild form of autism. His mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) has tried to protect him from the world, but he feels it's time he established some independence.

Throughout his funny yet emotional journey of self-discovery, Sam finds himself dealing with typical teenaged situations including broken friendships, graduation, going to college and the most daunting task yet: starting a relationship.

But it’s not just Sam that is struggling. His entire family, including his father (Michael Rapaport) and sister Casey (Brigette Lundy-Paine), are also navigating major changes in their own lives all while supporting Sam.
