The story is about Sam (Keir Gilchrist), a teenage boy suffering from the autism spectrum. All his life, he has been guided and protected by his parents. Now, he wants independence and love. Sam’s character is funny blended with the emotional struggles of an autism patient. He is on the path of self-discovery, while the rest of the family grapples with struggles of their own.
The pivotal theme of the web series states ‘what does it really mean to be normal?’ The fourth season is speculated to give the answer to the same.
