The concept of web series High & Mighty is right in its title. Without knowing why (mystery is key to this show), protagonist Chelo suddenly finds that getting drunk or stoned makes him mighty: it gives him super powers.

A wrench? Sure! Bricks? Go for it! Car windows? Awesome! A potted plant? Bring it, man!
