Noah, at eight years old, is living with his mom in the lodging projects in East Tampa when his non-attendant dad comes for a little while in the wake of being away for quite a long time. After a contention and an insult by his mom, he passes on her to go to Swainsboro, Georgia with his dad and, after around five months, his dad leaves him out and about. He is gotten on the abandoned provincial street by an irregular greyhound transport driver who endeavors to return Noah once again to his mom’s home in East Tampa yet she dismisses Noah by pummeling the entryway in front of him and, not knowing what else to do he meanders for quite a long time, winding up in Ybor City.
For a considerable length of time Noah lives on the tough roads of this Cuban neighborhood of East Tampa and dozes in a trash dumpster, eats out of trash bins behind cafés and asks for cash from outsiders. At some point, a social specialist finds him and offers him a home in a halfway house where Noah spends the following nine years of his life until he graduates secondary school and moves out to pursue a higher education. While in school he goes through an excruciating separation with his secondary school darling and looks for help from an old resigned specialist who just gives him mind-changing medications.
He thinks about self destruction yet all things being equal, inadvertently shoots and nearly kills his secondary school sweetheart and her dad. Condemned to fifteen years in jail, he is selected to be a canine kid on the jail’s canine crew to chase down got away from detainees putting his life in extreme danger by weapon shoot. Following two or three years following and catching escapees, he is paroled back to complete school where he proceeds with his schooling and graduates. He then, at that point, procures a bosses and doctoral certificate in brain research to help other people find God for a long time in his own confidential practice in the end being conceded a full exculpation from the Lead representative (Lawton Chiles) of Florida in 1993.
