Michael is 17 years old, with incredible memory, very talented in constructions; he does not like transport and changes, and he doesn’t eat green stuff. He is in a study lab, helping scientists prepare for an international conference, where they are trying to cure Michael from Asperger’s Syndrome. The problem is that he is not sick and Asperger’s takes no treatment. Nurse K. works under the meticulous instructions of Herr Doktor, while apprentice B. is trying to understand Michael, building a strong relationship with him. When Michael asks for a pet, they let him have it. But, when they realise that this pet is inspiring revolutionary ideas in Michael, they take it away, causing him a trauma. The only solution for Michael is to attempt to be friends with (some) humans.
