Twenty-two-year-old Oleg doesn’t live up to his mother Marina’s idea of a real man. She thinks he’s an autistic loafer. He’s enrolled at the University of Nizhny Novgorod and is supposed to be watching online lectures, but his mother says all he actually does is hang around watching TV. Oleg doesn’t have any need for friendships, either. Marina wants him to improve his life and subjects him to a series of unconventional treatments. Don Juan raises questions about the distinction between introversion and autism. Salvation eventually comes from an unexpected source. It is an encouraging victory for humanity, as well as a comment on mental health care.
