A documentary showing a man with autism's quest to meet Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich will be released in theaters later this month.

In "Mission To Lars," Tom Spicer, a British man with a spectrum disorder called Fragile X Syndrome, travels to the West Coast with his siblings on a mission to meet his favorite drummer.

The unpredictable trip to track down the Bay Area band includes a Sacramento concert stop and a visit to a top Fragile X researcher located at UC Davis.

Originally produced in 2012, the film will get limited theatrical release and be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on Sept. 25.
