The Only Way is an absurd comedy inspired by Georges Perec's novel A Man Asleep and Bartleby, the Scrivener, a short story by Herman Melville. Adam, a young man living with his mother, hasn't left his apartment in years. After his mother's death, Adam's own life is being turned upside down. Since he's not able to function properly without motherly concern and service, Adam decides to take his friend's, the postman's, advice and rent out his mother's old room to a girl, who'll take care of him.
