Travel with Art Rodriguez as he dreams of his past.

He experiences an unpleasant childhood full of difficult obstacles that could have profoundly impaired his chance for a normal life. Life appears hopeless during those young years as he struggles to discover who he really is and at the same time contends with his dictorial father. Travel with him as he takes you through the California Youth Authority, the prison system for young offenders. Although he grows up under such trying circumstances, he still finds enjoyment and excitement growing up in San Jose's east side. Experience with him his childhood as he reflects back on both pleasant and unhappy times. In this story that brings laughter and tears, both young and old can find comfort knowing that when life appears bleak and there seems to be no hope, events in life can change. There is a way out of a desperate situation. See how a bad relationship between a father and a son can change from resentful to an affectionate one.
