Mole Man

Mole Man

Directed by Guy Fiorita

The astonishing story of Ron, a 66-year-old autistic man who has spent the last five decades building a 50-room structure in his parents' backyard. Using no nails or mortar, Ron instead creates perfectly balanced structures from scavenged materials he finds in the woods outside his Western Pennsylvania home. When Ron's father passes away, his siblings are left to figure out what's best for Ron - who has never been officially diagnosed with autism - when his 90-year-old mother can no longer care for him. In an effort to find the money to keep Ron in his home, his friends team up in search of a mythical mansion Ron insists lays abandoned in the forest. But will they be able to find it? And, more importantly, does it even exist? This is the story of an extraordinary life, a family, and the beauty of thinking differently.

I could think of a couple suggestions for him to continue to live where he does. Though I would have to curb his electric consumption. What an amazing man who is being enabled by those that let him be him. Thank you.

thank you to the creators, family and friends for sharing Ron's story with us. I found this to be a heartwarming, interesting story of a generation coping well, and loving well with an outcome unknown. Blessed is this woman at 92 still able to live her life and look after her son.
