The 18 years old Simon (Bill Skarsgård) has Aspergers syndrome. He likes space, science and circles but can‘t understand feelings. Simon‘s life turns into chaos when his brother Sam (Martin Walström) gets dumped by his girlfriend. Simon realizes it is up to him to find a new girlfriend for Sam to restore the order. Simon knows nothing about love. But he has a scientifically perfect plan. Balanced humor and seriousness, the film makes us see the world through Simon‘s point of view.
