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 grandfathers 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: When it works, the film serves as a modest reminder that the challenges of autism may sometimes be no more daunting or fearsome than those that face anyone in search of an independent life.
Fresh: "The Story of Luke" is not a saga of epic proportions, but with a huge assist from Pucci's layered performance, takes a premise that could easily be movie-of-the-week sappy and finds a humanizing lightness.
Fresh: A feel-good story about an autistic man's quest for independence, The Story of Luke is a charming little film in need of a bit more grit.
This is a great movie it's kinda short Seth Green is amazing in it!
Touching and funny!
Such a great movie and important for everyone to see to better understand and accept people with autism.
Awesome, Great, Terrific Movie!
A heartwarming and enjoyable motion picture that only Alonso's love of story telling and the story line could have brought to fruition. We enjoyed the screening in Lawrence KS on opening night so much that we downloaded it on iTunes when we got home, and gifted copies to family.
