I Am Not Broken
I Am Not Broken is an unconventional love story between Victor, who has always had intimacy problems, and the wild and cool Melissa. Their relationship is somewhat Sid & Nancy, you could say. It ultimately fails because of his intimacy issues, and we go through Victor's trials and tribulations in coping until he realizes he's inherently asexual and then tries to reconcile with his now ex, Melissa.
