A bullied teenager inadvertently makes a human connection when he shuts down his Youtube channel after haters attack him.
Nicabob is a bored teen living in nowhere Southeast Louisiana. Prolonged use of ADHD meds have made him a social outcast even seemingly among his own family members. To amuse himself, he starts a Youtube channel. Although he follows instructions from Youtube and models his videos after successful Youtubers, his channel only attracts haters. When the bullying becomes unbearable, Nicabob shuts down his channel. The difference between real time and online time becomes almost unbearable for Nicabob. Frustrated, he begins to chop through the wall of 8 foot weeds in his back yard. When he breaks through to the other side, he discovers a chance at real human interaction.
This is an Elektrik Hybrid: a story that was once real and then became fictionalized. A teen who was once real plays a fictionalized version of himself. What is the line between documentary and fiction?
