Charlie is trying to understand something about humanity his brain won’t let him feel. Ronan has just been dumped. Elle and June are stuck in a relationship that isn’t working. When hurricane hits and a figure from their past comes to stay, they are each faced with startling truths about themselves and how easily they each miss the mark when it comes to the people they love.
With heart, humor and a touch of the bizarre, AGNES explores Aspergers, the nature of vulnerability and how we strive for human connection, even when it seems impossible.
