Charles Jones is a participant in an experiment to see if people living on the autistic spectrum (neuro-diverse) can use their special gifts to offer alternative solutions to challenges in the medical field.
From his perspective, everyone he has not made a personal connection with are seen as children. He has always found it difficult, if not outright painful, to express his ideas. He wants to contribute, but there is always a breakdown in communication that he cannot seem to overcome.
He must step out of his own world or an important medical breakthrough will be lost in his silence.
