(A)sexual follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, vérité footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery, David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question, and the outcomes might surprise you.
