The Fifth Estate Strangers in a Familiar Land

The Fifth Estate Strangers in a Familiar Land

Imagine that you've been transported to another world. It looks exactly like this earth, but with a few crucial differences. Everything seems more intense: noises louder, colours brighter and every sensation overwhelming. And then there's the problem with other people: you understand their language perfectly, but you can't decode what they're saying. And you can't read their facial expressions. You're drowning in emotions and confusion. This kind of reality may be difficult to comprehend unless you're one of the many people who suffer from a tormenting disability called Asperger's Syndrome.
