30-year-old truck driver Andrew from Virginia has found himself in a loveless marriage without any friends to confide in. Being on the autism spectrum often makes him feel disconnected from the world. When he hears about the new video platform YouTube, he decides to share a video about his favorite thing: elevators. Being transported from one place to another at the push of a button is exhilarating, and through his video, Andrew invites others to join his adventure. Before he knows it, Andrew has birthed an online community with him at its heart. Many members of the community are, like Andrew, on the autism spectrum and begin to look up to him as a mentor. He proves you can enjoy your unusual hobby in a world that isn’t always kind to outsiders.
