How does a man who is—literally—paralyzed by happiness find love? Thanks to a condition called cataplexy, a rare disorder that causes him to lose control of his muscles whenever he is overcome by strong emotion, particularly joy, Brooklyn librarian Charlie has learned to carefully edit all delight-triggering people, places, and events out of his life. But when the beautiful, spontaneous Francesca falls for him, the risk-averse Charlie finds himself at a crossroads. Based on a true story originally featured on This American Life
