When you have Asperger’s and rely on social scripts, it is not easy to deviate from them. Especially if you are obsessed with German dive bombers and just want a date. An intriguing animated short.

This English-spoken animated short is about Chris, a man with Asperger syndrome. Together with Hans, a little guy who lives inside his head and prepares social scripts, he tries to camouflage his obsession with dive bombers. When zoologist Gwen invites Chris to meet her favourite chameleon, he quickly proceeds to a flirting script. Then, the chameleon dies and Gwen turns to Chris for support. This light-hearted film provides insight into how an autistic brain works – Chris’ brain, anyway.
