David, an upper-class charmer, leads a very comfortable life, until he is mandated to attend
a support group for adults with disabilities. There, he is forced to come to terms with his own
high-functioning autism, despite his resentment towards being singled out as different, or
anything other than what he interprets as ‘normal.’
In group, David is paired with Sarah –a quirky and outgoing woman whose optimism initially
irks David –and the two take a trip together to the Brooklyn Bridge. Despite their contrasting
personalities, they forge a bond. As their relationship deepens, Sarah, confident in herself
and her individuality, challenges David to embrace his own uniqueness.
An endearing and heartwarming romantic comedy about people navigating the difficulties of
a relationship, Keep the Change details an underrepresented community with authenticity, optimism and humor.
