This story is told through the eyes of a young boy, Omar, who comes to New York with his family in search of a better life. The story takes place in the seventies, when abuse within the household was common, accepted, and where police officers looked the other way. When immigrants weren't as welcomed as they are now, and one-sided fights were common place. Omar, now an inner city youth, is caught in the middle. This is Omar's personal experience with fights, beatings, hardships. A nine year old trying to get accepted into the community. An eleven year old trying to earn a few dollars by shining shoes in New York City bars. Experience what it's like for a sixteen year old to get the better of a sexual predator. Ride the New York City subways with Omar, as pan handlers, con artists, and gangs, ride along with you. Stand with Omar in Times Square, at the worst time possible. Seeing this through Omar's eyes will put you into that time and place, from the safety of your home.
