Keep The Change

, 2017

“An ode to self-discovery and acceptance that’s as funny as it is sweet.” - Variety

Winner of Best Narrative Feature at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Keep the Change follows David, an upper-class charmer who 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. 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 idiosyncracy.

An endearing and naturalistic romantic comedy about people navigating the difficulties of a relationship, Keep the Change details an underrepresented community with authenticity, optimism and charming humour.
