Synopsis by Olivia Cantor
Based on the young adult novel by Julia Walton, this film is about Adam (Charlie Plummer), a teen recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. Unlike others with the same condition, Adam’s version has him seeing the personas behind the hallucinatory voices that often reflect this disorder. His mother does everything in her capacity to help Adam cope, even transferring him to another high school. Adam then meets Maya (Taylor Russell), a spunky and spirited new classmate trying to befriend him even if he appears socially awkward at times. Co-starring Andy Garcia and AnnaSophia Robb.
