Reese comes from the streets of NYC. At 14, he gets in with the wrong crowd and ends up in a juvenile facility with the kids who are even more trouble than he is. Somehow he has good morals despite his mother’s drug problems and his father’s history of beating him. He is chosen to work in a retirement home and meets an interesting man who teaches him some valuable life lessons. He still has a terrible temper and wants to help a young kid who is being picked on. If he acts up one more time, he will go to a harder facility and may never recover. Can he survive?
