A down to earth tale about a less than fortunate young man who finds salvation through friendship. A story about love, but not a romance. A story about humane interaction and showing compassion towards others. Orville Von Hammerstein wants nothing more than to become an aviator, but he has a minor setback. That being, Orville is mildly autistic. His condition, along with the passing of his father in an unfortunate test crash, has led Orville’s mother to forbid him from ever stepping foot on an aircraft. This all changes when Orville meets Sally Jenkins. Sally befriends Orville after a quirky incident at the local RC plane airfield. She then accepts Orville for who he is, and provides him with the things he wants most in the world: A friend, and a ride on an airplane.
