A girl with high functioning autism fights her way through the path of employment as her favourite video game characters
See the world differently through the eyes of Mindi, a girl with high functioning autism. She turns to video games as one form of escape from the world around her. Like people on the spectrum, she has a hard time with social interaction and communication, and also having dissociative identity disorder. She is faced with one of the biggest struggles of stereotyped autistic adults-- finding a job. When her mother unexpectedly encounters impending unemployment, Mindi decides it is time to step up and help. From writing a resume to her phone screening and all the way to her final interview, Mindi overcomes it with her larger than life world of games as her favourite video game characters in the real world.

Mindi is our story's hero. She has high-functioning autism with dissociative identity disorder. Often misunderstood and having difficulty navigating in the "normal world", she copes and associates as her favourite video game characters hoping to defeat one of the things she has difficulty beating... the final interview.
Writing a resume may be just be seemingly easy steps before getting to the Manager (aka Final Boss), but for someone like Mindi, re-imagining them as video game antagonists that she would have to thwart in order to Level Up helps her connect and engage better. See her battle these "monsters" in order to proceed!
