Charlie has a neurological disorder where strong emotions, especially joy, make him faint. He lives with his brother. Working as librarian gives him a quiet environment but then Francesca enters the library and his life.
This story is loosely based on act 3 of episode 409 of "This American Life" radio program hosted by Ira Glass.
I can't drive with the radio on in case anything by The Pointer Sisters comes on and I swerve into a ditch. I can't walk along any beach where there might be frolicking seals. I can't eat kettle corn. I can't boogie board. I can't swim in any body ...
During Marvin and Liza's wedding, when Charlie starts falling, he is beside Cooper and in the next shot, he comes in front of Liza.
There is an extra scene during the credits, where Charlie and Francesca share a bathroom together. Charlie watches her applying roll-on deodorant and falls asleep in the sink.
