His Difference is a relatively small film with a fairly simple story, though impressive in terms of setting.

Alex tries to survive a betrayal in the scientific world. An idea has been stolen by someone he trusted, and now he’s left with an inspirational void that can’t be healed by a professor who seems to justify the dastardly act committed by Alex’s partner.
