The statistics on mental health are staggering. There are several behaviors that surface among the mentally ill and if left untreated or ignored the effects can be disastrous. One of the many ways a person deals with mental illness is by covering it up with alcohol or drugs as is the case in this story.
This is a story about a young man's intense journey through mental wellness and drug abuse. It beckons the question of Nature versus Nurture; was he born this way or did his ill-fated lifestyle turn him into what he became and how he evolves. Follow him as he begins his innocent yet fitful start from Greenville Kentucky where his grandfather rejects him to his upbringing on the bad side of East Harlem New York where fate takes a stand.
His treacherous lifestyle spins out of control as peer pressure, sex and romance cause him to use dangerous means to gain control over his life but instead turns him into a target. He pays his dues repeatedly and grows with the roll of a dice only to find himself at more risk.
The tables turn repeatedly as he learns the true meaning of love and support kicking and crawling his way out of the hole that has been dug for him or he dug for himself. (Nature versus Nurture). By the end, but there is no end, this is life, he realizes this is only the beginning.
