Sheltered his whole life by his grandparents, Luke, a young man with autism, is suddenly thrust into a world that doesn’t expect anything from him. But Luke is on a quest for a job and true love, and he isn’t taking no for an answer.
Luke, 25, is autistic and has lived a sheltered life with his grandparents. But his world is turned upside down when his grandmother dies and he is forced to live with his dysfunctional relatives who have no patience for him or his senile grandfather, who they quickly force into a nursing home. Luke is left with his grandfather’s final semi-coherent words: “Get a job. Find a girl. Live your own life. Be a man!” For the first time in his life, Luke has a mission. He is about to embark on a quest.
