Autism in Love is a documentary showcasing four individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their romantic relationships.

Creators wanted to focus on adults with ASD as there is less documentation on this age group. The documentary demonstrates the challenges and intricacies of romantic relationships for individuals with autism due to deficits in social communication. Overall, the focus on romantic relationships for individuals with ASD showcases the impact this social area has on mental health and quality of life.
