The naturalist and broadcaster offers a personal and brutally honest account of his life coping with Asperger's syndrome, reflecting on the devastating struggles of his adolescence.

With scientific advances offering new possibilities to treat his condition, he travels to America to witness radical therapies that appear to offer the chance of entirely eradicating problematic autistic traits, while his long-term partner Charlotte talks about the problems Asperger's creates in their relationship.

UK, 2017, 59 min., Dir. Lizzie Kempton
