Anthony "Cheetah" Featherstone was born into the world, sitting on the fence. He's half black and Native American Indian. He was blessed with good looks, but his good looks landed him into a life of chaos. His dream is to become an entertainer with signing and dancing. This dream was interrupted by an alcoholic mother, racism in his neighborhood, and issues with the police. Those were the least of his worries because the major problem that he was faced with, was a troubled 26-year old aunt who took him down a road of misery. She brought a trauma for him that leads him into depression and suicidal thoughts. What saves his life is the girl of his dreams and the opportunity for musical success.
